    Sometimes when i use my mouse on the Macbook the cursor will disappear especially at the top left corner of Sarfari, but if you move it around it comes back. anyway that wasn't the issue, i was using the computer normally and all of a sudden the mouse cursor started moving gradually down and to the right on its own. I could use it with on finger but when i took it off i would still move down and to the left on its own, two fingered scrolling was unusable. i logged of, same problem. restarted, repaired permissions, and booted in windows and it was still doing it until i logged off windos and restarted. STRANGE,

    The disappearing cursor is normal if you're using the keyboard. The travelling cursor is less normal. Try resetting the trackpad when this happens. You can reset the trackpad by resting your palm over it for about five seconds. :)

    Well, my cursor disappears when I start typing something. It's so that the cursor doesn't get in the way. Of course, it only happen hen I'm typing though. If this is happening when you're not typing then your problem is a little less normal. :eek:
