OS X :: Trackpad And Keyboard Malfunctioning After Waking Up From Sleep?

Aug 14, 2009

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.

MacBook Pro :: Keyboard Input Not Working After Waking From Sleep

Dec 2, 2014

Since installing Yosemite I'm seeing a random issue where, after waking my Macbook from sleep, keyboard input is not possible.  I can move the mouse using the trackpad, and applications all appear to be running as normal.  I can quit applications from the dock also using the trackpad.  When trying to type anything I get the 'bong' sound as if input is blocked. The only fix I've been able to find is either to ssh in from another machine and force a restart, or to force a power off using the power button. 

I've tried searching the console logs and can't find anything relevant happening at the point this fails.  I've also considered that it could be any number of applications misbehaving, but having quit everything running that is visible in the dock, keyboard input still isn't possible.

It is "unlocked". Every time I click it, it just stays unlocked and won't actually lock. For example, I can't lock it on the "Energy Saver" prefpane, but I can lock/unlock on the Accounts prefpane...

OS X :: Keyboard Not Working After Waking From Sleep?

Feb 26, 2010

I'm well sure this topic has come up before, but I've never seen it answered.

After waking my Mac mini from sleep, my keyboard won't respond at all. I tried:

- Plugging it into a different USB port, including the one on my monitor
- Using the mouse to wake the computer up from sleep instead of the keyboard
- Switching to a different, wired keyboard (had a wireless before)

Both keyboards used were off-brand (non-Apple) keyboards, but I've had a couple before these two that never had a problem whatsoever.

MacBook Pro :: Why Isn't Trackpad Working

May 15, 2012

I don't remember when this started, but i can't enlarge anymore. I've checked my trackpad's preference and it is ticked. I tried unticking it and ticking it again but the results are still the same. It won't work. The scrolling and dragging are working fine.

MacBook :: Trackpad / Touchpad Not Working (at All) Under XP SP3

Feb 27, 2010

I've installed XP sp3 on my macbook, works great....except the trackpad. Most common problem with the trackpad (in other threads) is slugish response or whatever, but not here: the device just does not work at all.

These are the symptoms:
- no life in the touchpad device
- device manager shows an exclamation mark on the touchpad and says it wants me to update the driver (after enabling). This does not help a bit,I tried all the decision paths after right clicking it, include downloading some driver from the internet and pointing the operating system to this driver: no avail.
- accessories->system tools->system information: signed drivers does not even report something looking like a track or touchpad.
- updating to bootcamp 2.2 didn't bring anything.
- often threads (mostly about the trackpad being sluggish) endup pointing to the 1.1 update [URL], but something not available cannot be doesn't work
-under the apple operating system it works great.

Probably nothing to do with this, but my motherboard was replaced a few months ago (under warrenty), can they have forgot to hook something up there? I never tried XP before that repair on this machine.

MacBook Pro :: Trackpad On I7 Not Working From Very Bottom?

Apr 26, 2010

I was wondering if anyone with a i7 macbook pro could test to see if the very bottom of your trackpad responds to anything. Right now I can't get it to register a single thing if my finger is at the very bottom and sliding horizontally along. The strange thing is it works just fine in all other parts. I noticed it because as I use the pad I would get up to that point and think hey why is my cursor not moving anymore. Can anyone confirm this is how it is supposed to be or is my trackpad a lemon.

MacBook Air :: Trackpad And Keyboard Not Working?

Jun 26, 2014

I have a macbook air which trackpad and keyboard doesn't work.

I have searched the forums and tried the most. Here is a list SMC-ResetPRAM-resetCompletely Clean install of 10.9.3 (ongoing)Repaired permissionsChecked if trackpad settings were wrongClose-Open lid to see if that did the trick I have maybe forgotten something, but as you can see I have tried a lot.It all began after the computer being on for over 1 day.When in the login area the OS tells me that no keyboard was found after like 2-3 minutes. Other external devices works just fine. The funny thing is however, the keyboard works when starting up. It's possible to do commands, and if I hold option down to select a start disk the keyboard works here (I can use the arrows to select a startdisc), and when the computer is asleep I can wake it up by pressing the trackpad. So..

OS X :: MacBook Pro - Loud Fan And Keyboard / Trackpad Not Working

Jan 4, 2011

Basically I was using my Mac and it froze so I closed the lid. When I opened it again the fan was much louder than normal. It was still frozen and wouldn't respond so I switched it off from the power button. Then I turned it back on, but it wouldn't boot past the grey screen and the fan was still loud. I read some threads here and it said to boot it in safe mode using Shift, I did that and now I'm at the log in screen. However now the keyboard and trackpad aren't responding and the fan is still loud. If I get an external usb mouse and keyboard, any advice on what to do from there?

MacBook Air :: Trackpad, Keyboard USB Port Not Working?

Dec 21, 2008

I have a 2 Gen MBA and today suddenly the keyboard, trackpad and even the USB port stopped working, I tried connect an external mouse but it didn't work, even other USB devices are not working !! I tried the display port it is fine, but I am not sure about the audio port. I tried the SMC reset but it did me no good.

I had bought the MBA from Apple UK but currently I am in INDIA for my winter break from UNI. I don't have my OSX discs at the moment they are back in UK, I tried calling the Applecare but they are closed being a Sunday, and I don't want the local Apple Authorised Service center to touch my air as I don't trust them (The appointment of these repair centers in INDIA is not upto the highest standards !)

The keyboard and the trackpad are working in the Apple hardware test, I was able to move around the cursor and even use the keyboard to select the various options, so I believe the hardware is fine.

So any suggestions what can I do in the meantime, I will call Apple Care in UK tomorrow. I am not back in the UK till the 26th January.

OS X :: MacBook Trackpad And Keyboard Not Working On Restart?

Jan 10, 2009

I was just using my Macbook normally and it came up with an error like IP was in use or something with the red exclamation mark. The my internet stopped working so I just restarted it. Now my Macbook is literally not working? I can turn it on but when I get to the login screen, my mouse or keyboard are not working! So all I can do is hold the power button to turn off. It appears OSX is still running fine though because the screen dims after a while and the flashing | in the name input bar is still flashing.

MacBook Air :: Trackpad Click/Button Not Always Working?

Jan 23, 2009

Just bought my MBA about a month ago. Recently it started doing something weird, mostly on the dock icons.

Sometimes when I go to click on an icon, it doesn't do anything, regardless of whether I am clicking, double clicking, or pushing the button below the trackpad. I end up having to move the cursor off of the icon and back on once or twice before it will let me click.

MacBook Pro :: Unibody Trackpad And Keyboard Not Working ?

Mar 25, 2009

For some reason i purchased this three weeks ago. Everything was working fine. However today i guess i closed the lid and then when i opened it, the computer didn't wake up. So i just held the power button and restarted. It booted into Leopard fine but now the trackpad and keyboard don't work....

The trackpad and keyboard seem to be fine when i hold the option key too choose what volume to boot from. It seems for some reason the keyboard and trackpad lose its function once it boots into leopard.

I looked up forums and tried numerous things like VRAM wipes, SMC reset, tried external keyboard and mouse and they only work up until it actually boots into the leopard OS. Tried going through a hub and same problem.

MacBook trackpad not responding, and I'm stuck at the log-in screen. Completely useless when it's the week before finals and I have multiple papers due. Someone gave me a wireless mouse, but that still isn't working. I'm going to try and restart it yet again, but does anyone have any suggestions?
