  • use the touchpad to make the mouse cursor visible,
  • rotate the upper half of the laptop 180 degrees and shut the lid; this is e-book mode,
  • observe the mouse cursor and button press events.

Observed behaviour:

  • cursor events continue,
  • mouse button press events may occur if the lid is pressed,
  • the application may received unintended input.

Desired behaviour:

  • touchpad is ignored.

OLPC OS for Sugar and Gnome ignores touchpad events in e-book mode.
