    I have a late 2008 unibody MacBook. This happened before, and now is doing it again. When I click or even tap to click, my MacBook acts like I am holding the button down. If I click in sons text it just keeps highlighting as I move, if I click the bachround it wants to just keep making a box. The only wY u can get it to stop is to hold down power till it shuts off. Everything else works like normal, but the MacBook acts like I am holding the button down.

    In your trackpad preferences, do you have click lock/click to drag or something like that checked on?

    If so, that's your issue.

    No, it is working fine now again. I wonder if a drop of moisture got below the trackpad. I have a perspiring beverage that may have dropped some water on the trackpad.

    Mine just started working again on its own. I still suspect water. I'll have to be more careful. If it does it again, I will check back here though.
