    I have a 17" macbook pro (which I love) but of late one of the things driving me crazy is that sometimes (usually after I haven't rebooted in days) I lose the ability to right click. (two finger tap). As soon as I reboot the problem goes away, until it pops up again. Anyone else have this problem and more importantly know how to fix it so that it stops this craziness???

    I have a similar issue with my 15" MacBook Pro and the wireless Mighty Mouse. I have no idea what causes it.

    It's my one really complaint about the machine but it is freakishly annoying having to reboot just to be able to right click :|

    Just out of interest, do you notice whether the option turns itself off in System Preferences? :)

    hmmm, I will have to check that out next time it happens. Something else I noticed too, if I continue using the laptop without rebooting when I have right-click issues it won't let me enter text into fields anymore :confused: anyone else have that issue?
