    So i have naturally very sweaty hands and it really messes with the trackpad. I mean, there not dripping or anything, just moist, and i cant control my trackpad as well as i would like because of this. Anyone have any suggestions. Anyone else struggling in life because of sweaty hands, my ears are open.... ;)

    You might have to wash it every once in a while.

    A mouse seems the easiest and most obvious solution and you should be hit round the back of the head with a rolled up newspaper if you didn't think of that already.

    Alternatively you have those laptops with those little weird rubber nipple things that can be used as a mouse.

    Perhaps you could find some way to connect an external touch screen to the laptop negating the need for a mouse at all.

    I'm sure you could use a toothpick or something else as a stylus. Or if you have a DS use the spare one.
