    hey i have a macbook pro,
    my friend has a macbook
    but his touchpad behaves really weirdly, sort of like adaptive sensitivity...when i move my finger slowly, the mouse adapts the sensitivity to low so the cursor moves slowly as well..when i move my finger fast the sensitivity increases and so the cursor moves fast...
    this is not like my macbook pro, which has constant sensitivity...it gets really annoying..
    now the contageous bit..
    when i attach a usb mouse to it, it behaves the same way...BUT....when i then move that mouse to my macbook pro, which at the time was runnign windows xp, the mouse behaves like the macbook's touchpad!
    move the mouse slowly, the cursor moves slowly
    move the mouse fast, the cursor jumps with high sensitivity...sucks for gaming!

    anyone experience this?

    how can i fix??

    btw...reboot windows fixes this.

    Does the issue arise when running Windows or Mac OS X? Or both?
