Ability to disable the on-screen mouse pointer when using an external mouse.

It would be great if we could disable the on screen "mouse" pointer when using a USB/Bluetooth/Dock mouse or touchpad. Currently my Android cursor 
works, but right clicks exit the application and I have to constantly work  around having the on screen mouse you guys provide (which is great to have, 
just wish I could turn it off.)

Thanks for your time, and what a great app!

I have the Asus Transformer, so this would be great to hide the pointer when it is docked.

+1 for hiding the pointer when using an external mouse in Android. I have an Asus Transformer with keyboard and mouse dock. The mouse works but I see the GUI pointer. I have to relocate the GUI pointer to the bottom right of the screen where it's less distracting.

+1.  At that point on a tablet such as the Motorolla Xoom you then have a fully working mouse/keyboard remote-desktop environment.

 

Which would be rather nice for Visual Studio development ;-)

+1 again for ASUS Transformer Prime. Also ability for click-lock using the trackpad or mouse for dragging.

+1 for ASUS Transformer Prime. It's a pain to have to find somewhere on the screen to move the pointer to so i't not in the way

This is absolutely critical for us to be able to use.  You can't use excel effectively.  Come up with a menu button in the status bar to bring up the keyboard stuff.  My organization needs to be able to move windows and the right clicking the normal way.

+1 Please add the standard menu button to unhide the keyboard with the on-screen mouse pointer disabled.
