    For the past couple of weeks I have been experiencing random pauses from my MBP13 09.
    These pauses are also coupled with a hard drive clicking type of sound.

    Any ideas of what's going on?:confused:

    check your SMART status in Disk Utility. while this could be a number of things, it certainly fits with a failing harddrive. if smart says anything except "Verified", back up all your data, immediately.

    hell, back up all your data immediately anyway.

    when i had this issue (on a 2006 MBP), it was bc the cable that connected the keyboard/trackpad had become bend and therefore wouldn't be fully inserted into its female port underneath the trackpad. I ended up having to put a piece of thick paper between the batter and the cable so the battery would push it back into the hole. I don't know how to remedy it in your situation but that might be the cause.
