Ha!  Just fixed it with a random thought.  Tried so many things too!!

The previous owner (it's a work notebook) had jammed something into one of the USB ports and broken it.  The plastic/insulating center piece had been broken off and two of the pins were very bent and making contact with the upper surface, I grabbed some tweezers and straightened them out.

When I switched it back on....Boom, a mouse pointer without having to hit Fn+F9 prior to the login screen.

I suspect the contacts made by the bent pins was somehow fooling the OS into thinking there was a USB mouse connected and so shutting off the trackpad by default.   Only think I can think it is.

Woo hoo (hope it is a similar fix for you )
