    Last night the trackpad on my MacBook Pro just randomly started acting weird. It will takes me two or three clicks everytime to select something. Everything else works fine. I can scroll, hover over icons, and do all the hang gestures, but when every I click on something, I have to do it several times. Does anybody know what might be causing this or how I can fix it?

    Which model do you own and do you use a 3rd party power supply?

    Apple has had some reports of this behavior related to power supplies made by a third party company. If you are using one of these power adapters, unplug it and try running from the Apple battery to see how the trackpad behaves. Also try using the Apple AC adapter instead of the third-party AC adapter. If the trackpad behaves normally while running from the Apple battery or adapter, there is most likely an issue with your third-party adapter.
