Macbook Pro 13-inch trackpad problems
I'm having some trouble with my trackpad, and sometimes my whole computer.
I use tap to click and tap to drag on my trackpad, but at times it randomly gets stuck 'clicking' so that even if I am not touching the trackpad it still registers me holding the 'click', even if I wait a few seconds for it to deselect like it's supposed to, it just refuses to. If I tap/click again, it just clicks and holds again, and I can't move the mouse because it will try to drag whatever I happened to click on all over the screen. Is this a software or hardware bug on my part?
I think it's software because sometimes when my computer goes to sleep/screensaver, if I try to wake it before 5 seconds has passed (5 seconds grace of not requesting password), it shouldn't ask for my password. However, it shows me my desktop but has the login box on screen. I can click around it and use my computer just fine, but if I click cancel it goes back to sleep/screensaver, and it's annoying to have to type my password if I was ignoring my computer for too long for it to sleep and me having to try and wake it instantly.
I'm not sure what's going on. And I can't really reinstall because I left my installer disks overseas, and my Time Machine as well.
Any ideas? Mostly for the trackpad issue, the screensaver one is random and rare enough to not be a priority.

I'm having the same problem! It only started happening fairly recently (last couple months.) The only way I've found to get around it is to restart, which is obviously a huge pita!

It happens to me too, and just the other day I found a way to cancel it without restarting or waiting.
Just double tap the trackpad and it stops dragging It's not a real solution but at least you can easily cancel it...
