    I woke up this morning and my trackpac is all of a sudden extremely mushy... like... the feedback has decreased considerably. There is still a small click, but there is hardly any feedback it's so mushy.


    Any ideas? This is extremely weird.

    Apple trackpads are known for getting things under the button. It is a lot better on the unibody MBPs but it can still be a problem, even there.

    What model/year MBP do you have?

    It is an early 2011 I bought in August. Any fixes I can do?

    Not really, since the trackpad is located under the battery which is not a user serviceable part and requires a special tool to remove. You could try canned compressed air around the edges of the trackpad from the top, but your best bet is to visit the Genius Bar or an AASP. Should be taken car of under warranty.

    Did you sleep with the head on the trackpad? :D

    I'm not sure if Apple still has problems with expanding batteries. It could be pressing on the trackpad from below. If you really think that it behaves a lot differently than it used to, have the laptop checked by Apple.
