I usually use an external pointing device with my laptop and the first thing I do upon logging into the laptop is to press the laptop's function key to disable the touchpad.
I seem to recall previous versions of Ubuntu saving the touchpad state across shutdowns/reboots.
I would like the state of the touchpad to remain until I change it again using the laptop's enable/disable touchpad function key.
Is there a way to accomplish this using the existing laptop function key?
My laptop is a Lenovo IdeaPad Y510P and Fn-F6 is it's Disable/Enable touchpad button.
