How does one disable touchpad and mouse + menu buttons when typing?

ideally, i would like for any mouseclicks and menu opening commands made within X microseconds of a keystroke to be discarded, with the user setting the value of X.

for the record, i'm working on a laptop (2730p) which has mousebuttons and menu buttons quite close to the typing keys, and i have on occassion overwritten entire paragraphs and somehow even issued a close program command while furiously typing. needless to say, i would like a fix for this.

Don't know if this functin exists or not. But when you're using a USB mouse, just make sure to have your touchpad disabled.

just found the app touchfreeze, which works pretty well at blocking errant mouseclicks. still need an app for blockinfg the menu key.
