if i rest my wrists on either side of the touchpad, it seems like this is the reason that the page will scroll up and down a little bit--and while typing, sometimes the text will highlight itself and delete before i can stop it.
am i the only one with this annoying problem?
i have tried setting the touchpad's sensitivity to the lowest.
it is not a case of touching the touchpad inadvertently.
this is driving me almost as much as when the cursor jumped arbitrarily on a past laptop...
in case it matters, it is an HP envy 17 j115cl, and what i am resting on is aluminum.
thanks!
