[PLUG] Synaptics Touchpad Question

I was trying to figure out how to get my synaptics touchpad to become disabled whenever I have a mouse plugged into the laptop.
In the process I managed to turn the touchpad completely off, where I can no longer activate it again. I've used the gnome mouse application to try and activate it again and gysnaptics/syndaemon. My conclusion was that of the options that seem available, the best was to use the mouse applet to enable/disable the touchpad as needed. I seem to have it permanently disabled, and can't figure out a means of reactivating it.
If anyone has any ideas of alternative utilites. There are no options in bios for the device. The laptop is an Acer AspireOne751.
