    Hi,

    just now my magic mouse went wild. When I switch it on and it automatically connects to my macbook air it acts as though the left button is clicked all the time. That means whenever I move my mouse it looks like that:

    (I DID look and the mouse button is not jammed or anything). However interestingly the same happens when I use my touchpad. Whenever the mouse is connected and I try clicking on my touchpad it does not work. Really as though the left button was clicked. When I disconnect the mouse all is fine again. I tried restarting the laptop and putting out the batteries of the mouse. Nothing worked so far.

    Do any of you have an idea?

    Thank you in advance

    Try a single click on the touchpad on the application in focus and see if that solves it.

    Not sure if it is the same issue, but I have seen this happen myself when tap to click is enabled and that usually fixes it for me.
