This works well to kill the pad itself, but not its external buttons, and 
I don't see that option in the extensive help output from synclient -l.  
This I suspect will do it since the buttons do need a conscious push.  
The touchpad responds to me thumbing my nose at it from 3 feet, or at 
least does a great job of convincing me that it can. :(

Now, where is the last script that X executes as it completes it 

Seems like that would be the obvious place to add the above line.

In this case, and unrelated to it, lubuntu has so far stood above all the 
others, head, shoulders, and belly button above the crowd. Many things I 
battled with on Mint 17.1, are now Just Working.  Except nfs.  But thats 
another post & thread for tomorrow.

Thank you Thomas.
