I have a background layer that is completely locked and will still move if I am moving or copying another smaller layer above it with my mouse/pad. Yes, the layer is completely locked.

That is not possible the background layer is the bottom layer and is canvas size for it does not support transparency. Its position can not move.   Canvas size can change a document canvas size so the background layer composition can be altered.  Are you sure its a the background layer not a normal layer with the name Background.

Can you show us your layers panel? It should not be possible.

I have this exact problem and it became so much of a headache that I literally stopped using Photoshop and exclusively started working on Illustrator.
