    My new PowerBook 17" 1.67 mouse is stuck in a clicked position! It doesnt click at all anymore. I have called Apple Support and they are shipping a box out. Has anyone else had this problem? Is it fixable by me? I am going to school and near where i go to school there is a Apple Store, I am hoping they can fix it there and save me a homecoming for my powerbook. Any body got any thoughts or have had the same problem?

    The mouse button...

    The trackpad doesnt click. However, I could have been a little more descriptive :)

    You could be infering to an external mouse though... in regards to that its the mouse on the powerbook and its the actual button that is stuck. Thanks!

    Can you lift it up? Is it loose? If not, it may just be slightly stuck and lifting it may fix it. But no guarantees.

    They shipped a box to you, and they'll probably replace the top cover, provided they can reproduce the problem. You can calm down now ;)

    They don't do much at the Apple Stores in terms of repairs. I don't blame them, taking off the top cover on a 15" PB is a massive PITFA.

    Not sweet. Taking the covers off the Albooks makes the aluminum warp a little, it's never the same... it's minor the first time though, so you should be okay.

    Mine actually warped a great deal the first time, to the point where I requested that they redo the repair.
