    So I posted last time about how my keyboard and trackpad stopped working on my MacBook. For about three days or so now I've been using a wireless keyboard and mouse. Just a minute ago, however, the keyboard and trackpad started working again (and I just ordered a new Dell laptop too, after feeling frustrated with my MacBook that keeps breaking down)

    I'm happy now, but seriously.. what just happened? Will my trackpad/keyboard continue working or is this some weird glitch. I'm so confused...:confused:

    Possibly something loose in the area of the keyboard/logicboard connection ?

    How old is the MacBook ?

    Any warranty cover ?

    Wow this is bizarre. I just shut the lid of my MacBook and put it to sleep, and now my keyboard/trackpad work again.

    My MacBook is a little over a year old so I have no warranty coverage. I stupidly didn't get AppleCare. Do you or anyone have any idea how to fix this? Thanks in advance

    Go to Apple and tell them what happened, maybe its some weird glitch that can be sorted cheaply :)

    If not argue that the laptop is just out of warranty and that it is ridiculous that you should have to get it repaired, you never know what they might say ;)

    Once in class I had this (or a very similar) problem. Obviously a problem, as I could neither take notes nor amuse myself. After that 1.5 hours of opening and closing my laptop, it never happened again. Not that day, not ever. I'm just as clueless as you.
