Extended desktop mode

i have a primary screen 22 inch and LCD full hd TV 42 inch.
i use extended mode and i would like to know
if there is a way to lock the mouse pointer in the primary screen
while extended mode is on.
i hate it when he suddenly disappears and i don't want to switch extended mode on and off.
is there a hotkey or a simple way/program to do this quickly?
