I have noticed that the touch pad on a laptop will move with the most gentile touch of your finger but if you use a pen, coin or any other object no matter what the force the pad will not show any reation.. Could someone please explain to me how this process works because it is driving me nuts not know...

Note: I also put some toilet paper over the touch pad and pushed my finger over it and it moved the POINTER#!%%!#%#!%#!!#% WHAT NOW!%#
