I have an old HP laptop with tap-to-click turned on by default when there's no external mouse. It is annoying to be typing text and have your thumb accidentally brush the touchpad and suddenly you're typing in a totally different location in the text, wherever the mouse pointer happened to be aimed. Perhaps adding a touchpad lockout delay that momentarily disables tap-to-click for 1 second, or whatever, after a keyboard key is pressed would help, something like "debouncing" a switch contact in a driver. A control-panel parameter should be provided to adjust the lockout period -- some kids might need more than a 1 second lockout.
