    Has anyone recently seen their MBP turn jerky (say in the last week). I think it is something to do with the iStatpro which I have uninstalled but the problem is still there periodically.

    Difficult to show with a screenshot. Mouse pointer jerks across the screen rather than being smooth. This clears with a reboot.

    Hey,

    I had the exact problem your having, when I had iStat PRO installed, my MacBook Pro (2.4ghz 2gb) would fail to wake up from sleep until a couple of minutes, then when it did wake up everything was laggy from the trackpad to opening Dashboard.

    I removed iStat Pro and rebooted and everything has been fine!

    REMOVE ISTAT PRO!

    I just installed iStat Pro and experienced the sleep issues as well as the erratic trackpad. I was really worried about my computer and didn't even make the connection with the widget. Stumbled upon this thread, removed iStat and all is well.

    iStat Pro suddenly got problematic a few months back with a particular update. I switched back to the previous version and all has been well :).
