Turn off Xorg mouse/pointer functionality

view story

https://bbs.archlinux.org – I am looking for a way to turn off pointer functionality when I start up the Xserver with startx.  Ideally I would be able to toggle this without quitting X and restarting. Here is my current fix:modprobe -r psmouse startx -- -nocursorTo startx with pointer functionality, I domodprobe psmouse startx -- Every solution I have seen while searching online seems to do exactly one of the two following things:  1) Make the mouse cursor invisible (still active) 2) Disable my mouse hardware (track pad) while leaving the cursor visibleSuch options include doing an "xinput set-props" (HowTos)
