    Hi All,

    Is anyone else's glasspad unresponsive? My mouse pointer will sometimes not move when I run my finger across the pad. It's almost as if it does not register that my finger is on the pad..Oddly enough, the finger gestures (gee, that sounds dirty...lol) work just fine.

    I wonder if anyone else is experiencing this?

    Thanks!

    I have not got my new MB yet but I do have my new MBP 2.53 and I am having the same track pad issues as you also.

    it's a software function.. the lower 5th of the pad or so has a delay... the purpose of this is so that if you rest your thumb on the bottom (as if it were still a button) it doesn't disable the mouse (2 finger option) .

    I've been annoyed by this for the last couple days too. Seems pretty random.

    So, if you touch the top of the pad it shouldn't delay? I've experienced this when touching right near the middle area. (that's what she said)

    hmm, yeah, that is exactly right...i will remember not to try to move my pointer with the lower part of the glasspad.
