How to disable Internal keyboard on startup?

I am trying to disable my laptops internal keybord. I used xinput float to disable it. But it stays working again on restart and prevents me from booting. I want the xinput command to be included in start up and disable the internal keyboard permanently.

You can add the command to your ~/.profile file so it immediately runs at login.

How? please give me the command

You can use the command that you previously successfully used:

Paste it into your ~/.profile file. If you do not see the .profile in your File Manager, tap the ctrl+h keyboard shortcut to reveal hidden files.

# ~/.profile: executed by the command interpreter for login shells.
# This file is not read by bash(1), if ~/.bash_profile or ~/.bash_login
# exists.
# see /usr/share/doc/bash/examples/startup-files for examples.
# the files are located in the bash-doc package.

# the default umask is set in /etc/profile; for setting the umask
# for ssh logins, install and configure the libpam-umask package.
#umask 022

# if running bash
if [ -n "$BASH_VERSION" ]; then
    # include .bashrc if it exists
    if [ -f "$HOME/.bashrc" ]; then
	. "$HOME/.bashrc"

# set PATH so it includes user's private bin if it exists
if [ -d "$HOME/bin" ] ; then

# set PATH so it includes user's private bin if it exists
if [ -d "$HOME/.local/bin" ] ; then


Right at the very bottom, after that last fi will work. Just place the cursor there, hit enter once to drop down to a new line and paste in your xinput float command just as you had run it in your terminal previously.
Save the file when done.
