MacBook Air :: Keyboard And Trackpad Not Responding After Sleep Mode
Jan 4, 2009
I just got back from an 8-day long trip to mainland China and when I got back I realized that I had left my MBA unplugged and in sleep mode. When I came back, I opened the lid and found that hitting the keys on the keyboard didn't work. Then I realized that the battery was probably completely out of charge. After I plugged it in, I opened the lid again and hit the power button.
The device powered up but after it got to the login screen I could not type my password in or move the cursor. I tried plugging in a USB mighty mouse but it still wouldn't register. I was replacing some of the USB driver files on the MBA before I left and I think that might be the problem. How do I fix this if there's no network boot or firewire? I think my warranty might be voided too because it's had a few nasty bumps but I don't think that's what's causing the problem.
So, sometimes when I wake my SR 2007 15" MBP from sleep, the keyboard and trackpad are unresponsive and I have to reboot several times before they work. I googled the problem and looked around here and didn't find any solutions.
I got a brand new Macbook Air the other week.†I noticed that sometimes, after folding the computer (with the OS running), then unfolding it - the keyboard and trackpad are not responding at the login screen. Actually if I press the keyboard it lights up properly but there is no access to the system. The only thing that works is the power button, so every time I have to power down the computer, then back on again.
After a few hours of uptime, certain keys on my keyboard stop working and I have to reboot: both command keys and the zero key. Sometimes, after the computer has been in sleep a long time, the keyboard and mouse don't respond at all. I can get the computer to wake up again by pressing the power key, but the mouse and keyboard don't respond, so I can't do anything except hard boot.¬† This problem first appeared after the update to 10.10.1. (I'm dealing with it right now, so I'm getting the '0' through the keyboard viewer, but there's no way to access that from the password screen.)
Info: MacBook Pro (15-inch Early 2008), OS X Yosemite (10.10.1)
The other day my battery died on me and after I had plugged it in and restarted, I was unable to enter in my password at the login screen because the keyboard and trackpad wouldn't respond. I tried repairing the disk and permissions but I still can't get past the login screen. I know I can always reinstall leopard but there are a few files I haven't had the chance to backup. Any way to get back those files before I reinstall?
So over the past week I've been having issues with my Macbook randomly sleeping while I'm just sitting here browsing, typing, etc. I reset the SCM already and it didn't help. I checked the console because I figured SOMETHING had to be the issue. Well, I've got the same error twice now... Here's what it is:

As far as I can see, the AppleYukon is an ethernet driver, but I'm not using ethernet at all. Is this also the driver for the Airport because that seems to be where the issue is coming from. I'm using a newer Linksys router with WPA2 security.

Last night instead of shutting down my Macbook Pro, I closed the lid and expected the Pro to just hibernate as usual, and yes it did. But when I woke it up this morning the keyboard and trackpad didnt work. I have tried everything from restart, forced shutdown, and even the SMC thing to reset the Pro, but nothing works, it just goes to the login page and I cant do much else there besides from shutting down.
Okay, I closed my display on my MBP and it went to sleep then about ten minutes later I came back to it to check my mail and when I opened it back up it came out of sleep mode the normal dialogue box came up asking for my password and when i typed it in only every third key press was registered. So I just had to be persistent and i was able to enter in my password and it worked, however then it went to my desktop and I went to open mail and the trackpad wasn't working at all. I used spotlight to open activity monitor and check to see if something wasn't responding but everything looked fine, then after that I then force quitted activity monitor and relaunched finder and the trackpad still didn't work so I just restarted and now everything is fine but I am wondering what happened because I would prefer this to not happen when I really need to use my computer, So does anyone have any ideas of what might have gone wrong.
I like putting my imac to sleep. Unfortunately I have a cat that moves the mouse and steps on the keyboard while I am work. Is there any way I can disable the keyboard and mouse and just use the power button to wake it up from sleeping?
I basically want to keep it asleep as much as possible to save on electricity, since I am not home about 10 hours of the day and asleep for the other 7, makes no sense in draining all the electricity. I was hoping someone could lead me to a small piece of software that allow this to happen.
I'm having a problem with my PowerBook G4 where is goes into sleep mode at random times. Mostly when I am streaming video..or at times the fan comes on, it sounds super high then boom. sleep mode again. After hitting the space bar, it comes back on, but it'll happen again shortly after. I've played with the sleep settings
As of last night, my MBP started acting very strangely. After entering my username and password, it would enter the desktop for a short period of time and then kick back into sleep mode; the screen would turn back to black. Sometimes it will let me stay on the desktop for a long time and other times it will hardly let me stay on the desktop. I called apple support and they had me start the computer in safe mode; even then it occasionally kicks me out.
The tech guy said that it was a "strange software issue" and not a hardware issue. I thought it was a hard drive issue; my hard drive makes an odd sound when it unlocks (a grinding sound), but it has been doing that for quite some time with no issues. I tried to reset the SMC and it didn't do anything.
How should I remedy this problem? Is this a hard drive issue? Hard drive failure? Has the grinding sound finally caught up with me? I am running OS X; not leopard or snow leopard. I know I need to upgrade, but this shouldn't be happening.
I was using my mac and a relized that the really edges of the trackpad don't respond at all, by edges i mean like around .5 cm from the edge. especially in the bottom its where its more noticeable, is this normal? what shall i do
I starting having problems with my MacBook this morning. After being asleep I started using it again and I wasn't getting a responce from mouse or trackpad clicks. The cursor will still move but I can't select anything. ¬†I did a hard restart once and it went back to normal. After it happened again I did another hard restart and it wouldn't boot up again. I did two hard shut downs/restarts and it finally booted up again. Although it's still not responding.
In the last few days I've had a recurring problem:†Randomly and without any obvious context in terms of actions, apps etc, my trackpad simply stops responding.†I have all options enabled on the trackpad, such as soft click+drag, and the problem has so far only occured when performing that: drop'n drag.
It get's stuck and I cant release whatever I've gripped.†I am now only able to use the keyboard and have to reboot to be able to use the trackpad again.†After reboot the problem returns randomly after a while.†I can't think of any recent software updates or additions that have coincided with the problem, except installing Livedrive Briefcase recently.
The problem however does not specifically occur when working with that (though Livedrive is set to run in the background).†The problem occurs more and more often, usually after I have closed the lid (sleep). Also, I am able to use my Magic Trackpad, which in turn brings the build in trackpad back to working!

I have a question about the trackpad on my unibody macbook with the bad screen sadly . Is the "button" area of the trackpad (where the button would be) suppose to be unresponsive to movements, for example, when I move slowly along the button area, my mouse curser does not move at all while any movement in the middle is registered with high sensitivity. It only starts to register when I move towards to middle of the trackpad or quickly along the button. However, three and four finger gestures work perfectly along the button area. I have also notice that the corners of the trackpad are also unresponsive to movements.
So my friend was using his MacBook and went to do something else. He came back and the screen was black, he hit space and nothing, tried the trackpad and nothing. He restarted by holding the Power button, and it go to the log-in screen, but he can't type anything, or use the trackpad. He has tired restarting several times and no luck. He also tried an external Keyboard/Mouse and that didn't work.
He did plug in a Flash drive and the light turned on, so the USB ports are at least getting power, but nothing is working.
I have a new 2.4 GHz MacBook with 2 gigs of RAM. and the keyboard response is very slow, especially the delete key. I type a word, and my fingers are faster than the display time. This is particularly noticeable when backspacing and correcting typos. anyone else experiencing this problem? Better yet, any ideas to improve response time? I'm almost missing my old Windows based machine.
I have a 2.0 Alu. MacBook and it was fine this morning everything was working, I decided I wanted to play CoD so I switched to my Windows side. Everything was working as well and then I decided I wanted to use Leopard again. Thats when I noticed I couldn't use my mousepad and the keyboard wasn't responding. A Mac "Genius" told me to reinstall Mac OS X through Bootcamp but how can I do that?
I just recently got a white Macbook 2007 and after I installed snow leopard on it I realised that the I,K and LEFT,RIGHT,UP,DOWN keys were not working and so I installed leopard on it and still had the same problem I booted into safe mode on both but still no luck and this morning the Z key stop working I turned of mouses keys and that still did not work.
Moisture built up inside closed laptop.¬† Screen came up when opened.¬† Keyboard unresponsive... And computer is "searching" for keyboard or bluetooth device.¬† After 5 or so minutes screen went blank.¬† Don't know if it's in sleep mode or just out.
A few days ago my keyboard wasn't responding so i went on line and restarted my computer.¬† However, today my keyboard is malfunctioning again and now the Caps Lock key and the Backspace key aren¬īt working .¬† What can I do to get my keyborad functioning properly again?
I haven't noticed this when using a USB mouse, but when I use my trackpad recently, and click on a non-active window, it focuses on the window I clicked on and then immediately "minimizes" it into the dock.
Just got home and opened my MBP and cannot get it to come out of sleep mode. On top of that the keyboard is not responding, I've tested the caps lock button and all and no response. Everything was working perfectly fine 2 hours ago. I can hear it running and I've tried do a hard restart but I keep getting a black screen and no keyboard response. The only light that is on would be the light in the switch to open and close the MBP.
I was installing a new dvd player since my first one died a month out of warranty. I had the top cover/keyboard out, with the cable still connected. All of a sudden the keyboard stopped responding, and now I can't power on the laptop. Is it easy to damage the ribbon cable that connects the keyboard? I was somewhat rough with it, but I am worried that I will order the whole assembly and it still won't work? I cracked the cover while doing the install, so I do need one anyway.
Is there any way to power it on without a keyboard? Are they crazy expensive at the mac store? Can they hook one up and test it or do I have to leave it there? I have too much important data to let someone have access to my hard drive. This is incredibly urgent since I cant get to my work data, and I am self employed. I had to borrow a 10 yr old computer to get internet access.
I have a first gen 13 inch MacBook aluminum. It was dropped on the corner a few months ago but has preformed fine ever since. I have been using it up until yesterday without a problem. Although yesterday I noticed the airport wireless icon was reporting and exclamation point icon and it was having trouble finding and connecting to networks my iPhone was connecting without a problem. Today I boot up and the boot time is very slow and sometimes hangs.
It takes 10 minutes to get to the login screen and when it does I can move the mouse but the keyboard won't respond. So I can't type my password to login. The mouse moves but when I click a button nothing happens. I booted in safe mode and off the os x disk with the same issue. However I used key commands to do that and selected a boot disk using the keyboard and the mouse to do that so I know the work. Can I bypass my loginscreen somehow? I'm most concerned about my data and I plane to get a hard drive first thing tomorrow.
