    My wife tells me that her macbook has been acting up this morning.

    Her trackpad button has stopped working 4 times in the past hour, and it has never done it before. A reboot fixed it. Unfortunately, after about 10 min, the problem came back.

    The computer was in constant use (not going in and out of sleep).
    She DID run two updates this morning: an "intel something" and an "iphoto" update.

    Anyone else having this problem?

    Happened to me

    The problem was in my case the battery!
    It was damaged because of over heating, and thicker than normal, so the button couldn´t "click".
    Check this, it took me two months find out that problem.
