    Has any one have this problem on there MacBook? If I type for a while and need the mouse for something, I have to move it around to find where it is. It doesn't show up right way.

    Your thoughts.

    It doesn't happen to me normally, but when that does happen, I hit command tab to change the active app. That generally brings back my pointer.

    It is a feature of the system. It disables the trackpad, and by proxy the cursor when you type. That way, if you graze across the trackpad with your thumb while typing, you don't cause the cursor to jump, putting a paragraph inside a word.
