    I have my trackpad and my bluetooth mouse. my mouse and trackpad keeps failing on me. i can move the mouse around but i can not seem to be able to click at all. I have tried disconecting the bluetooth mouse, reconecting it. closing the lid, opening it. I in the end had to shut down by pressing the button and pressing enter. :(

    i really need some help here. Sometimes i am doing important things (well to me of cource) and it stops. this is a great problem and help would be greatly appricated.

    Thanks

    What brand mouse is it and are you saying you have the same problem with your trackpad? :)

    Does the trackpad ever behave like this if the mouse isn't connected? :)

    Well, I'm just thinking whether it might be a driver conflict. Maybe disconnect your mouse for a while (or use an Apple mouse) and see whether it acts the same way. If it's a Bluetooth mouse, then make sure it's not still connected by turning it off. :)
