Cannot use keyboard and mouse at the same time.

I have a recently installed version of opensuse 11.4 and I am unable to use the keyboard and the mouse at the same time. Whenever I type on the keyboard my mouse will become frozen for about 2 seconds and then will work as normal. It will happen with any key press. This problem became very apparent when trying to play first person shooters. I cannot move with the keyboard and look around with the mouse at the same time. any help fixing this problem is very much appreciated.

Ok, I figured it out.
If anyone else is having this problem just go to your touchpad settings and uncheck “automatically switch off touchpad on keyboard activity”.
If anyone knows how to do this in terminal please let me know.**
