CB5-132T series Disable touchpad when usb mouse in use?

New to this Chromebook thing but had to play with one.  Love it for what it is and the cost. Still trying to get it comfy with my normal way of doing things. That said, I use a mouse...A LOT. Touchpad and touch screens are nice for quick use but for long use mouse is my friend. Now normally I set my portable computers to auto disable the touchpad when an external pointing device is present. Prevents what I hate most, a jumpy cursor that moved because as I typed I brushed the touchpad, mouse never does that. How do I do this in Chrome? Has to be a way.  Do not tell me I have to actually unplug the ribbon connector to motherboard, not a great solution. Give a clue please.

 

As a aside, this all I could find on it that kinda works- but not automatic detect like I am used too.

Works but again there has to be a better way?
