    hello there,

    recently, my mouse has been having a lot of trouble holding its "click". By this I mean when I, for example, attempt to drag a file folder to folder or even drag a window around, it loses the "hold" and usually ends up dropping the file and clicking something else. Oftentimes if i right click hold it will lose the hold and select something else in the menu.

    Does anyone have any ideas as to what the problem might be? I'm not certain that it is a hardware problem either, if maybe it is something to do with my iMac itself?

    It's a hardware problem AFAIK. My MM doesn't hold its click very well when moving, except if you press down hard. It wasn't like that at first, the problem developed over its lifetime (it's 4.5 years old).
