    Sometimes when I'm computing my trackpad cursor just freezes.

    I remember reading about this in the past with some of the other mac laptops. I think back then it was eventually fixed with a software update.

    Has anyone else noticed this on the new Late '08 MBP's?

    Today was the first time I used mine for more than a couple of hours. I had the problem intermittently throughout the day. It is also finicky when I try to use the rotate feature every once in a while.

    Its kind of aggravating but is more than likely a software update like you mentioned.

    The biggest problem I have is that I find my thumb wandering onto the touchpad surface. It plays havoc when trying to mouse and when trying to click.

    Ok, I guess we just sit and wait for a fix, then...

    You mean how the cursor occasionally sticks? Yeah, that's happened to mine a few times too. It seems to have some connection when trying to move the cursor into or off of a menu, or through text. Like it's something in the software that recognizes what the cursor is over that is causing it.

    I've seen the same issue so it seems like it is a software issue.

    Do any of you happen to have Multiclutch installed?

    Yeah, that's what I mean. The finger continues to move across the trackpad, the cursor is frozen. Happens intermittently.
