New laptop. It seems that a double tap can en/dis-able the touchpad.

Theoretically. In practice, I want it constantly enabled, but while my palm accidentally brushing against it disables it, double tapping does not always enable it.

I do have a function key combination to toggle it, but this is a major inconvenience when online gaming.

Is there an app which will detect when it becomes disabled & automagically enable it?
