I installed touchpad-indicator for my HP Pavilion laptop, and now I'm having problems with hit working. I've searched but have not found answers for this specific problem.

I really need to be able to toggle the touchpad on and off when using LibreOffice writer. The default shortcut [ctr+alt+c] activates a note-taking feature in Writer and does not disable the touchpad. After changing the shortcut from 'c' to other characters, the touchpad will disable but will not enable when I need it. I've had to manually reboot every time I've toyed around with it. Please help.
