Many laptops have the "mouse" buttons separate from the touchpad
that moves the cursor, and they can be operated without any
movement at all.

I sometimes use my laptop for an hour or two without moving the
cursor, on web pages where the only button of interest is
consistently placed from page to page, eg [NextDay] on BBC Radio
schedules. To a limited extent, this works with [NextInThread]
when reading this list's archive.
