RE: jumping font

This is a common problem with laptops. You are brushing the touchpad without realizing it. See if you have an option in your Control Panel to disable it while typing, or use a utility like the one in the link below.

Here is a link that might be useful: Disable touchpad

RE: jumping font

My laptops all have a key in the top row of the keyboard that will toggle the touch pad on and off most laptops have that so it is very easy to do and what you describe happens quite a lot.
