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.
