I'm going to put on my "Captain of the Obvious" costume ... this has to be picked up by a driver and if there is a driver, then there must be a way to ignore / disable that driver functionality. Of course, if it has been around for a long, long time, it could be so imbedded or low-level in the OS that registry entries to disable were never implemented. In that case, the sensor is probably part of the PCB so disconnecting a wire probably won't work, either.

Thanks for the discussion ... still looking.
