MacBook Pro :: Trackpad Scroll Freezes Immediately After Swipe

May 6, 2012

I've had a late 2011 Macbook Pro for about 4 mths and all of a sudden the trackpad has developed some problems. If I swipe a page it won't allow me to scroll up or down again on the new page that I have swiped too, it freezes. At times when I activate the back button nothing happens and I have to exit out of the site when the page freezes. The scroll only freezes immediately after swiping and not at other times when I'm moving up and down the screens.

MacBook :: Trackpad Cursor Freezes Frequently

Dec 14, 2009

When I got my MacBook a few weeks back it had a faulty disc drive and subsequently got replaced to the MacBook I have now. Getting back to the point on both this macbook and the first macbook I had it had a strange issue, where sometimes the trackpad cursor would freeze for a few seconds even though I'm moving my finger over the trackpad still. It would occur more often when I have my leftside-finger on the bottom left of the corner and tracking with the my rightside-finger as you would a usual happens quite frequently.

MacBook Pro :: My Trackpad's Cursor Moves On Its Own

Apr 13, 2012

My trackpad shows no visible change, however my cursur moves on its own, clicks on things, drags icons, and at other times refuses to move. Sometimes for a moment it will work, but then it is back again.† I highly suspect malware. My computer worked fine, there is no sign of hardware damage and I reset my Pram.

MacBook Pro :: Water Spilled On Trackpad - Cannot Click / Scroll

Jan 11, 2011

I just spilled literally about four drops of water on my trackpad. However it was in the bottom left corner and some may have got through. When I rebooted (I know I panicked should not have turned it on 10 minutes later) It worked briefly and then I could not scroll or click. I have applecare, but I don't think it covers this.

MacBook Pro :: Magic Trackpad Mouse Cursor Disappears?

Mar 4, 2012

I have a Macbook Pro, running Snow Leopard and from time to time my mousecursor just disappears. It's not while I'm typing but when i just hover over the screen. This happens especially when using iPhoto and Safara but also with some other applications. The cursor usually appears again when I move it over the dock and back into the application but it's kind of annoying.

MacBook Pro :: Cursor Jumps Around Randomly / Can't Get Any Response From Trackpad

Apr 20, 2012

The trackpad/cursor on my Macbook Pro vs10.6.8†acts stangely. Sometime the cursor jumps around randomly and can't get any response from the trackpad. The condition is getting worse and has about made the trackpad useless. I have tried using as wireless mouse and have had no problems whatsoever, which leads me to believe the problem is in fact in the trackpad/cursor; either the hardware or softeare associated with same.

Jun 4, 2014

I just got a MacBook Pro, and the button being part of the trackpads touch area is cusing me problems. Freuently when I go to click the button it moves the cursor slightly causing the click to be in the wrong place.

MacBook Pro :: Why Won't Track-pad Work Properly And The Cursor Will Move On It's Own

Jun 2, 2012

I bought my Macbook Pro less than a year ago and the other night I was watching a TV show in itunes and I couldn't use the track pad. I was able to finally shut the Macbook down and the next morning I rebooted it. It was still acting weird and the trackpad was jumpy and would randomly start opening windows and menus as if someone was contriolling it remotely. I used my bluetooth mouse and it seemed to work ok until tonight when I was copying some files wirelessly (or trying to) and evey time I tried to select files the cursor would jump to another screen and open a menu and then select all and open all my file folders. I was able to get that to stop openin ght ewindows but I still can't use the track pad and the machine acts like it is possesed and has a mind of it's own. I have made sure file saring and screen sharing are off and the battery shows to be normal from doing the control+battery test.

OS X :: Trackpad Moves Cursor But Cannot Click

Aug 18, 2009

I have been trying to do some research on this, but it seems so specific, and all the trackpad stuff is about the ones on the new macbook line. I have a MacBook that I got towards the end of 2006. Here is a link to the tech specs. I have the 2.0Ghz one.

As soon as I turn on my computer, if I use the built in trackpad and mouse, I can move the cursor around, and the keyboard still works, but if I try to click anything by either tapping the trackpad or hitting the buttons, it won't click. However, if I shut the computer down and plug in a USB mouse and then restart the computer, the USB mouse works. If I even slightly brush the trackpad or hit the mouse button on the computer, the USB mouse will stop working and I have to restart again.

MacBook Air :: Vista And Multitouch Trackpad Freezes

Feb 7, 2008

I am about to buy a Macbook Air, and I bumped into this review by Notebook Review [URL]. Obvious problem we encountered with the multitouch touchpad under Windows was the issue of touchpad freezes and blue screens. We suspect there is an issue with the touchpad drivers for Windows since we could consistently cause a failure simply by touching the touchpad with multiple fingers. It's pretty clear there is a problem when multiple touches disable a "multitouch" touchpad.

Overall the machine seemed to enjoy running inside Vista more than it did OS 10, but bugs were prevalent all throughout bootcamp with the current Apple-provided drivers. The touchpad was the source of many problems, including six bluescreens and 30+ touchpad lockups from "multiple touches." While the features worked occasionally trying to use the scrolling motions or even tapping multiple fingers on the touchpad would be enough to lock until a reboot. The bluescreens would often come at random, with the culprit always being the "Applemtp.sys" driver crashing. More than a few times the machine would bluescreen when I was not even touching anything on the notebook.

I hoped I could use this laptop for regular work (does not require processor-intensive tasks) but now I am starting to worry. Did anyone who has installed either XP or Vista help me understand if this is something I need to think about? Anyone who has installed XP or Vista using VMWare Fusion or Parallels please let me know if Windows works well, or if it gets bothered by the multi-touch trackpad...

MacBook Pro :: Any Crash Log - Why Trackpad / Keyboard Freezes?

Sep 28, 2009

I've experienced trackpad and keyboard freezes for quite some time now, say all of 2009. First time I took it to the apple store after my early 08 mbp would not turn on and they did a logic board replace which they tell me would also solve the freezing issues, it did. A few months go by and I started to get it again, say about a month ago. I updated to 10.6 some 2 weeks ago and didn't have the freezing issue until just a few minutes ago.

An external keyboard and mouse work fine, it's just the trackpad and keyboard that freeze up and don't work until I reboot. Long story short, I'm wondering if there's a crash report log of this and, if there is, where can I access it, see it, and where to send it or what to do with it in order to see what exactly is going on.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Cursor/trackball Brief Freezes?

Feb 18, 2012

I am noticing that my cursor freezes or should I say it stalls for 1 - 4 seconds after various operations like opening, closing, reloading windows, or switching tools in Finale, Photoshop, etc. I'm using the Kensington expert mouse (trackball) with their latest drivers. I used it on my old G5 before I upgraded to this Mac Pro, and it's worked fine for many years.

MacBook Pro :: Keyboard And Trackpad Freezes - Totally Unresponsive

Apr 19, 2009

I have a MacBook Pro 2.4GHz from last Fall (not the new Unibody) that has a keyboard and trackpad that freezes, meaning it becomes totally unresponsive, with no warning for no reason. Either I carry an external keyboard and mouse, or, my only recourse is to hold the power button down and restart the machine. When it reboots, sometimes the keyboard works and sometimes it does not. If other folks have had or are having this problem, would you please step up and say so? I'm tired of Apple support people telling me they have never seen this problem when there are so many others who have written to the forum with the same or similar issues.
