Turn off Touchpad When Mouse Plugged In -- VGN-N220E

I have a Sony Vaio laptop (model VGN-N220E). How do I set it so the touchpad turns off while an external mouse is plugged in?

Unfortunately you cannot Disable the built in Touchpad. however if it is erratic, or closing windows, or moving text. check to see if it has a Tapping and function tab. its possible windows has replaced it with the Generic Default USB mouse driver.

Reinstall the Notebook Control utility
and the Shared library

If still its acting erratic and tapping and Functionality are present, you can disable Doubletap and Web Assistant (Scroll)
