Synaptics Touch Pad v7.5

Synaptics Touch Pad v7.5 white light not working, if I disable TouchPad the red light does come on. Is there a fault or is there some way to turn it on and off? The Touch Pad appears to be working correctly. I believe the problem started after I used "AdwCleaner" to sort out my Laptop.

RISC OS user,

Quite often it is possible to switch the touch-pad on or off with an Fn + F Key combination. On my Advent Netbook the combination is Fn + F3. Look for a picture of a touch-pad on one of the function keys, often in blue.

Thank you Peter for the suggestion. I should have mentioned the make and model of my Laptop, It is an HP Pavilion dv6. I have been given the answer on the HP Forum which is Function Key plus space bar. Thanks again.

RISC OS user,

Glad you got it sorted. It's easy to press these key combinations by accident and not realise what you have done.
