Re: probook - slimline - the touchpad freezes there is a yellow light on the pad that comes on

THere is no need to call HP Support. Many of HP laptops have the ability to disable touchpad functionality by tapping or double tapping on the upper left corner. THis allows touch typists full access to the keyboard without worrying that a palm touching or pressing on the touchpad could cause the pointer to move away from where they are typing. You see the effect when you see the yellow light on the touchpad location. 

 

Just double-tap on the same area and the feature goes back to normal
