@ KarolR. have a look at these Lenovo websites for how to disable the Touchpad. It looks like pressing F6 on the hot keys along the top of the keyboard should enable or disable the Touchpad.

I know but i want to disable it permanently. in the instructions it says:
"If you reboot or resume from hibernation/sleep mode or enter Windows, TouchPad will be enabled automatically. Repeat the above steps to disable it. "
I have to disable it each time again

Does hitting F6 disable the Touchpad, if it does it's only a case of hitting F6 after waking the computer to disable it again.

The setting is in Lenovo Utilites, not any others setting &or drivers.

Most Laptop manufacturer do include its own utilities &or settings, as it do not use Windows drivers, etc.

Usually it do not follow the Windows drivers, especially.

That is why it include all its own drivers in their website.

Manufacturer Utilities is for most components, beside the mouse pad, sound & etc.

If you never use it then just disable it in the BIOS. That's what I did on my ASUS laptop since I absolutely hate the built in trackpad.

Try this:

Go to your BIOS then to "config" tab -> keyboard/mouse -> set Touch Pad to disabled.

It's very strange you don't find it under Device Manager. Maybe by Synaptics?
