Mouse pointer keeps moving on laptop

Q: My Mouse pointer keeps moving on my laptop.  Any idea why?

A: It always seems to be laptops that experience this issue and not desktops.

When I have experienced this in the past with clients, it has often been one of two things:

1.    While typing the user is inadvertently touching the mouse pad or mouse nipple without even realising. This is easy to do with a small cramped laptop where the keyboard is positioned in front of the mouse pad.

2.    The touch pad or mouse nipple on the laptop is damaged, with some form of pressure causing the pointer to move.

One solution to the problem is to disable the on-board mouse and work off an external one – which is probably healthier and more natural for your hand.
