    My trackpad has gone crazy. It works fine for a bit but then just goes all over the screen, then settles down again. Any suggestions?

    I'm using a PB G4 12" 1.33 GHz.

    Is the track pad dirty?
    Run any maintenance on the system lately?

    If you're doing some heavy duty things like rendering multiple images in photoshop, it can freeze and creates a queue of actions and once it gets a chance, it can run all of these at once and send it crazy.

    If not, go into the "Keyboard & Mouse" in System Preferences and see if anything is ridiculously high/low

    No the trackpad isn't dirty and multiple programs aren't running. I can just have finder open and it just freaks out, starts running all over the place. Then, 10 seconds later, its fine and dandy for an unspecified time...
