Touchpad -> Enable/Disable Touchpad -> 'Disable touchpad when mouse is plugged in'. When for both events 'Touchpad was enabled' and 'Touchpad was disabled' - 'Show a message in a popup' action is set

Not sure 100% if this is a bug in this case - but i think it would be better to hide previous notification and display only current touchpad status in a single line notification - i.e. - when mouse was plugged in - display 'Touchpad was disabled' - and when mouse was quickly unplugged after that - hide previous notification and display 'Touchpad was enabled' notification - without any other previous statuses of the touchpad in the notification.

It should either replace the existing notification or skip grouping
