Default Disable Touchpad while another mouse is attached.

As the subject says, I need to be able to disable to the touch pad when another mouse is connected. Currently I am running a stock Sony VAIO VGN-TXN17P with the latest install of XP Pro. I checked under the Control Panel, Mouse Devices (or whatever its called) and I can't seem to disable my VAIO's touchpad while my Bluetooth Mouse is connected. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Nick

Anything in BIOS?

My DV6000Z has a touchpad on/off button right on it.

Do you have the manufacturers drivers install for the touchpad?
