    A few months ago I started to have a mouse problem. It seems to be misaligned, and sometimes unresponsive.

    When I click in safari to go "back", it sometimes doesn't respond, as if I've clicked nothing. In order to get it to work, I have to click on the top bar of the window.

    Also, just as frequently, when I try to close the screen, it minimizes instead, as if the mouse is misaligned.

    This is VERY annoying.

    A while back I was getting kernal panics and I took the macbook to the genius bar. They suggested I reinstall the Operating System, and since then (about 6 months ago), I've only had one kernal panic (last week). They also said that they thought the reinstall would fix the mouse problem, but it didn't.

    What should I do? Bring it back and have them replace the mouse pad? I have an applecare plan, so that shouldn't be a problem for me.... but is there something else going on that I can take care of myself??

    this is a trackpad issue or mouse?

    have you tried playing with the settings in system preferences to try and get them working better for your personal usage?

    This is a problem with the button on the trackpad. I haven't played around with the settings, but this is a new problem, and I haven't changed any of the settings.
