Yesterday, I had to reboot my MBP about 4x. Probably the most I’ve ever done. It first started early in the morning. My Apple mouse, seemed to be stuck only on right click. And when I used the trackpad, it also wouldn’t let me click anything. So I restarted my computer. 2 hours later. It did the same thing again. I restarted my computer. Problem solved.. I then walk away from my desk, comes back. It won’t recognize one of my external displays. Unplug, replug, reboot, unplug, replug 10x. It finally recognized it.
Next up. I get home. Doing some work in excel. Next thing I know. No mouse clicks from the trackpad works or keyboard keys. I can move the curser (nothing externally was plugged in at this time)..
anyone else have this issue? Starting to feel like this is a logic board issue.

The laptop is under warranty, and needing that many reboots isn't normal, I would just bite the bullet and call or visit the apple store.

I was just wondering if anybody else has experienced this issue. And if so, what was the problem. It’s pretty annoying. And just randomly started happening.
I’m hoping it’s not a logic board issue. I’ve restarted it 4x today. And its just 11am.

Here’s a video showing what happens.

Update: took it to apple. Although the diagnostics came back saying everything’s okay. The “genius” thinks it’s logic bosrd failure. They are sending it off for repair.
Here’s to hoping that they replace everything and give me a 1tb drive when replacing everything lol.
