    My (relatively) new Macbook Pro has developed some sort of bug, and I'll do my best to explain...
    The cursor acts as if the left-click button is being held down, i.e. it highlights or drags a selected object. The only way to stop highlighting is to click another part of the desktop, but then it starts highlighting from that point.

    The only way to get out of this mode is to restart the computer (I've had to do that 3 times today). I've been assuming that it was a bug in Google Chrome since it was always open when the bug started, but this last time Chrome wasn't open.

    Operating System: Mac OSX 10.6.4
    Any help would be appreciated!

    Try reinstalling the OS, since the machine is relatively new. If you installed the Magic Trackpad Update, that might be the source of the problem.

    If reinstalling the OS doesn't help, then I'd take the machine into an Apple Authorized Service Provider (or an Apple Store) and have them replace the case.
