2007 macbook pro trackpad suddenly shuts off and/or certain keys get sent on repeat

mac os x. 10.6.8
serial W88240N91XR

hello! this use to happen a lot and to combat it I reset the PRAM, SMC and also ran Onyx to rebuild the permissions. now it happens almost daily. trackpad shuts off and I have to restart. also a random key like the ggggggggggggg key will start doing that. thoughts?!

please and thanks!

Check to make sure sure your battery isn't swollen. Also check to make sure your keyboard is clean, with no stuck keys.
