MacBook Pro :: Cursor Moving Slightly When Click Trackpad

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. 

Is there a way to turn off the lower area of the trackpad or something? Can I replace it with a trackpad with a seperate button?

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.

ITunes :: Cursor Lost - Right Click Trackpad To Find It

May 22, 2012

When I click to watch a podcast it opens in full screen. Once this happens I no longer have a cursor so I can't fast forward etc. I have to right click (two finger click on my trackpad) to find my cursor. It also happens when I exit the podcast and go back to the menu.†How can I prevent this from happening?

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 :: 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 :: 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.

MacBook Air :: Slightly Ticker With Superdrive Or Slightly Thinner Without Superdrive?

Jul 27, 2008

I was thinking, for the next generation MacBook Air, would you want a slightly thicker (thickest part is 0.9in, tinnest is ~0.35in) laptop with a built in Superdrive, more ports, etc, or would you perfer that Apple moves away from this with a thinner computer (0.1in thinnest, 0.6in thickest), but with same limited ports.

I would actually perfer thicker with a superdrive, since I want an air but I want it to be like a MacBook but thinner. What do you think? Btw, this is assuming the regular MacBook does not change in size, since that would sway peoples opinions.

MacBook Pro :: Trackpad Moving But Not Clicking

Jun 27, 2012

When my macbook is awoken from standby the trackpad moves the cursor around as normal but will not respond to a tap or a click. A restart won't get it working again, but a little later it will start working once more. At the moment I can't identify what gets it going, possibly by clicking using the magic mouse but can't be certain of that.

MacBook Pro :: Sometimes Trackpad Will Not Click

Sep 16, 2010

Basically, the trackpad works just fine most of the time. However, sometimes (often enough to be aggravating), it will not click. A typical scenario is this: I'll have a web browser or something open and I will want to close the window. So I go to click the red button. The cursor is over the red button, and the button turns to an x, notifying that I am in the right spot. I will click the trackpad, and it will make the click sound, and nothing will happen. I'll try clicking several more times and nothing. The click just won't register no matter how many times I click. What I will have to do to make it work is stop clicking and take my hand off the trackpad for like 5-6 seconds, then click, and it will work. I do not have tap to click on. This is a 15" MBP 2.4ghz i5.

OS X :: Cursor Moving And Clicking On Its Own?

Jan 25, 2010

well this problem recently developed probably within the last three months. Occasionally, while using my macbook pro my cursor will begin to make slight movements on its own. However, sometimes the movements are larger and can involve the cursor clicking and remaining 'clicked' on something.

Attached to my macbook is a wireless logitech keyboard, and a Razer Copperhead mouse. Prior to the copperhead I had a logitech mx518 but the problem still remained. I do not know what causes my cursor to move on its own and the issue does seem to occur when the mouse is unplugged as well. There is no dust or particles interfering with the optical sensor on the mouse and I am using a standard, clean, cloth pad. I just want to know what to do to correct this issue.

MacBook Air :: Does The Trackpad Have A Loud Click

Oct 22, 2010

For the new MacBook Air owners: how loud is the click on your trackpad?

I have a black MacBook which has the separate button (pre-glass trackpad). It's almost completely silent. On almost every unibody MacBook Pro though, the click is really loud and can sometimes even be heard in the next room.

How is this with the new Airs? Still loud or not really noticeable? I like to click instead of tap, but not if everyone can hear my neurotic clicking all day long

MacBook Air :: TrackPad Click Bar Fails

Mar 5, 2008

Yesterday I was using my MacBook Air. And I began to hear a loud click, when I clicked on the trackpad, click bar.It's a mechanical sound, it actually comes from the click bar, but only on the left side. I couldn't figure it out, but my son was at home, and he did.The left side of the click bar has raised up a tiny bit, maybe a 1/64th of an inch. The right side remains flush.Apparently something underneath the click bar has broken, or whatever, and allows the left side to float.

So when I click, the sound I hear comes from the raised end of the click bar, as it travels up and down.I'm going down to the Apple Store tomorrow morning to see a "Genius".What are my chances that they'll replace my MBA, rather than sending it to neverneverland?

MacBook Air :: MBA Trackpad Button - No Right Click?

Mar 7, 2010

I've been considering either a MacBook Pro 13" or a MacBook Air. I'll probably wait until the next MB Pro refresh (looks to be toward the end of March), and either pick up a new one, or possibly a refurb (of the earlier models) or close-out. Not sure yet.

I'm a long-time Mac user, on Macs exclusively since 1987, so no stranger to the platform.

I was checking out the MacBook Air (Apple Store and Best Buy), and noticed something about the trackpad.

It has the "button" at the bottom. But - try as I might - I could not configure it to do a "right click" (that is to say, press "towards the right" on the button to display a contextual menu).

I was able to go to the "trackpad" preference, and was able to set up the "two-finger touch" to invoke the "right click". But there seems to be no way to use the right end of the trackpad button itself to do this.

Is this correct, or did I miss something?

By comparison, it is easy to set up the MacBook Pro to do a right-click, even with its "buttonless" trackpad.

But this feature seems missing from the MB Air.

Is it?

The trackpad on my 2009 Macbook has suddenly gone stiff, I can move the cursor around however the button is stuck down and can only highlight text and will not let me click. A small drop of water hit against the pad 5 minutes before this happened so i don't know if this has anything to do with it.

MacBook Pro :: Why Does It Right Click Instead Of Scrolling On Trackpad

Mar 27, 2012

Every now and then my trackpad acts up. When I scroll down/up (2 finger swipe down/up), it does a right click instead of scrolling. I bought this brand new at the apple store and its acting up within less than a month. I don't want to have an exchange if they'll give me a refurbished looking one.
