    Hey how's it going, I recently bought a 13" MacBook Air 2.1 for 575$ bucks (not bad right? i hope lol) and I noticed minor problems. It recently stopped though, the mouse and keyboard works fine now. I'm on it as we speak, but when I angle the MacBook a certain way or hold it a certain way, my backlight will turn on the keyboard and trackpad may or may not stop working. It's almost as if I grab the far right corner of the laptop and slightly apply pressure or bend it, the light will turn on.

    I tried searching and I'm fairly familiar with opening up laptops and doing little DIY jobs, but I will probably take it to a professional. Just wondering if anyone has ever had an issue related to this? And has anyone been able to resolve it? I kinda have to flex the macbook air to get the keyboard or touchpad to turn back on.

    And I'm running a clean OS X install, with Lab Tick & CoolerBook.
