    Everytime I lean my wrist or hand on it, the computer acts as if I am holding down the click and trying to select everything on the page. It's very difficult to get out of, however about 50% of the time hitting escape works.

    This has happened on and off for the past year but has been getting worse recently. Has anyone else come across this and perhaps has a fix? Th MBP is around 3 years now.

    Seems like you have a short-curcuit?

    Hmm, take it to your Apple Store and have them take a look at it and give you an estimate....

    Sounds like a feature, not a glitch ;)

    (If I were more proficient in Photoshop, I'd make an advertisement spoof image of it.)

    I have also had this problem, but it turns out that the 220V in my apartment in Korea does not have grounding like my 110V plugs in America. Living in 2 countries at the same time is a pain.
