Toshiba Satellite, under Windows 8, touchpad jerky

Have any people found the Toshiba Satellite (Windows 8) to have a slow and jerky touchpad if the machine is booted up in a cooler than usual room (about 64 degrees)? It was especially jerky at first, and when copying images from a camera.

  • It seemed to improve if I unplugged the power and let it run on the battery.  That's odd.  I found that suggestion in Yahoo! answers.  
  • Toshiba says you can adjust the touchpad setting, here.
  • I do find that wiping the touchpad with a dry tissue or toilet paper sheet helps.  You just can't work with any food grease on your finger tips at all!
