    For my work MBP, I never shutdown the computer.

    But by around 3 weeks interval, trackpad gets disabled automatically. It does not react to the finger movements.

    I can move around by keyboard ok. Every other thing seems to work well.

    How can I make sure the problem is trackpad related? Can I check the status of trackpad by terminal or even restart the service?

    Thank you.

    Thank you very much for your help.

    Restarting MBP fix trackpad issue. I like to know why MBP disables trackpad by 3 weeks interval, if possible.

    I attached a USB mouse and cursor is moving fine now. This means trackpad has the issue.

    I am not sure why it disables itself. Any ideas?
