    Hi guys,

    I found a bug in the Mac OS X 10.5.6 (the bug was in 10.5.5 as well).
    "Tap to click" is enabled in the trackpad preferences. Now, when the time is changed in the "Date n Time" preferences, the tap to click doesnt work. Dunno why this happens. The work around is to uncheck and re-check the "tap-to-click" in the trackpad preferences.

    The issue actually happens when the meridian is changed, like changin frm AM to PM or vice versa.

    I found the issue in Macbook aluminum. I guess this issue is in the pro version as well...Need to chk it out....;)

    How often are you changing your time in the preferences that this is an issue? :confused:

    but, why does the time change when we boot back frm xp to Mac OS X??
    Isnt the Apple OS Time serv service supposed to sync the time between the OSes??

    I noticed the same issue on my girlfriend's new macbook when it was rebooted from Windows to OSX. First there was no problem but all of a sudden (so I suppose after automatically syncing the time) the tap to click didn't work anymore.

    Very weird, but now at least I know where it's coming from :)

    Something similar to this is happening right now with my MB. I still have tap-to-click and the time is still correct by now, all of a sudden, none of the three and four finger multitouch functions work. It's kind of annoying, and I'm still not sure how to fix it.

    Strange, huh?

    Just set both Mac OS X and Windows to sync their time with a central time server. That way, the time shouldn't be a problem. I remember having this problem with Windows XP, but since I got Vista everything is fine.
