OS X :: Unibody Macbook Trackpad Button Area Not Responding?

Jun 6, 2009

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.

Software :: Trackpad Button Responding Improperly?

Sep 1, 2009

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.

MacBook :: Disable MB Trackpad Button But Not The Whole Trackpad?

Apr 8, 2009

My MB's trackpad button is spoilt, I think there's something wrong with the spring which makes it unclickable and sometimes remains pressed.

Is there anyway to disable only the trackpad button but not the whole trackpad? Tapping still works, but the MB mistakens it as dragging sometimes because the button is stuck as a pressed button.

MacBook Air :: Keyboard And TrackPad Not Responding

Jun 15, 2009

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?

MacBook Pro :: Its Not Responding To Mouse Or Trackpad Clicks?

Mar 27, 2012

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.

MacBook Pro :: Trackpad Just Randomly Stops Responding

Apr 26, 2012

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!

MacBook :: Cannot Use Right Side Of UniBody Trackpad

Oct 19, 2009

The right side of my Late 2008 UniBody MacBook trackpad does not click. It used to click. Now, it takes a few clicks to "make it loose" and then it clicks. What could be the issue?

Also, I have noticed that the trackpad makes a "loose glass" noise sometimes. Almost like the glass is becoming loose from the trackpad.

MacBook :: Unibody - Won't Start When Press Power Button

Jun 13, 2010

my brother is having a problem with his unibody MacBook that he bought just a few months ago. It won't start when the power button is pressed, the sleep indicator light turns on and that's all. There's no start up tune, and nothing appears on screen. I had a similar problem with my MacBook Pro. I was told that the logic board needed to be replaced due to too much dust or moisture. Could this be the same problem? and has anyone else here ever had the same problem?

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.

MacBook Pro :: Unibody Trackpad Clicking Settings

Sep 1, 2010

Just wondering how to adjust my settings with the new trackpad? Would prefer it to be like the older MBP however with the new track pad seems things got all messed up due to the new settings. 3 finger swipe 4 finger swipe. I know to go to system settings > trackpad but from there I don't know how to set it up without all the extra stuff. I did something and now when i double click anything on the desktop it will not open so cannot double click to open things or double click to highlight text. I've tried everything and cannot get it fixed. It will let you double tap the top of trackpad but then you have to scroll to the open and click open. Is there anyway to set it up the trackpad to open icons by double clicking them? Or just dumb down the settings to standard point/click double click to open.

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 :: Unibody Trackpad And USB Mice Unresponsive

May 21, 2009

my wife's trackpad stopped responding to clicks today. The only function it will do is two fingers for right click. none of the gestures work, and the mouse cannot select anything, since it cannot left click. Same for tapping on the mouse as for actually physically clicking the trackpad down. I have restarted it a few times, and each time it functions normally for about a minute before it stops. Now the really weird part -- my USB mighty mouse does the same thing when plugged in. It works for about a minute, then suddenly the only thing her mb will recognize is the right click. I'm probably just going to have to take it in tomorrow, but if anyone could save me the trip.

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Use Unibody Trackpad With Video

Oct 23, 2009

So my 13-inch MacBook Pro's trackpad has become more and more annoying over the months. I'm trying to determine if what's annoying me is normal.

Basically, I can only guarantee the trackpad to register a click if I really push down hard on it. If I click normally--with an audible click--it will not register 50-70% of the time. I've put a YouTube video of it up at the link below.

MacBook :: Unibody Space Between Glass Trackpad And Enclosure ?

Jul 28, 2009

I didn't have a chance to take a picture, but I can take one when I get home if needed.I never noticed this before, until I recently compared it to another Macbook, but my glass trackpad has a different feel, and unlike the other unibody macbook, the trackpad is not flush with the enclosure, and there is a small space on the left side, and an even smaller space on the right side.I don't want to take it into the store, if this is something that is normal, or within spec. Aside from this issue, the trackpad works without issue and everything else is great.

MacBook Pro :: Something Got Underneath My Trackpad Button?

Sep 10, 2010

This is an early 2008 MBP, so I have a button separate from the track pad. For the last several days it has been most of the time clicking twice when I press it. The first one doesnt do anything, the second one actually clicks (that is, if I dont push it all the way down it clicks the first time and doesnt do anything, if i push it harder, it clicks the second time).

What can I do about this?

MacBook Pro :: How Can I Clean Under The MB Trackpad Button

Jan 22, 2008

So, first of all, here's some advice: Don't leave your macbook open, on the floor. You never know what cups you've left there.

In other news, I spilled coke (the soda) on my macbook keyboard/trackpad. I put it on the floor because I thought that it would keep it cooler, since I was installing something and the fans were going *******.

The keys seem fine, but now the trackpad button has a sticky feeling and sound to it, which is very annoying/disconcerting. Is this a genius bar job, or can I get in there and clean it myself?

It's mostly cosmetic, as the trackpad still works, but I wonder what will happen as the coke starts a new life under there congealing and whatever.

MacBook Air :: Trackpad Button Noises?

May 17, 2008

So I'm using my air today and when I press the trackpad button slightly, it makes a clicking noise... of course, not the click it makes when you fully press it. Hard to explain the sound, but before it really recognizes the function, it makes a sound like an external mouse click. sorry if this doesn't make sense... hard to explain.

MacBook Air :: Rev B. Air Trackpad Button Sticky?

Mar 27, 2009

My MBA's trackpad button is weird, i bought the computer brand new and from day one the button seems to be a little off. You can click it but sometimes you have to work really hard to keep it clicked. i.e. if i'm dragging a window sometimes it just stops holding the window. Also double clicking is difficult and clicking on different parts of the button is difficult. Do you think it's enough to take it in to the bar?

MacBook :: Trackpad Button Stuck?

Sep 11, 2009

I have a late 2008 unibody MacBook. This happened before, and now is doing it again. When I click or even tap to click, my MacBook acts like I am holding the button down. If I click in sons text it just keeps highlighting as I move, if I click the bachround it wants to just keep making a box. The only wY u can get it to stop is to hold down power till it shuts off. Everything else works like normal, but the MacBook acts like I am holding the button down.

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?
