my track pad suddnly stops working and then after a few hours its starts working again. its like in a week it does not work for some random days for some couple of hours. and then when it starts n its just amazing as if there is no issue. and when it stops working it does things on his own it minimize application, open them and does a lot of things.
I'd like to be able to hook a mouse up to Macbook Air and have it scroll properly, without breaking the scroll direction on its trackpad (or my magic pad). In other words, I want to disable "Move content in the direction of finger movement when scrolling" for mice, and enable "Scroll direction: natural" for trackpads. These seem to be the same setting, though, as checking/unchecking one has the same effect on the other.
How can I do this, as I'd love to be able to easily switch to a mouse, without having to mentally reverse the direction of the scroll wheel.
I am working the the text will turn yellow with a dictionary term pop up. If using the track the cursor keeps going or goes to another place on computer. It is worse on internet use. I keep restarting the computer. I have run a full virus scan. I tired using a mouse instead of track pad.
I Seem to have a problem recently on my 27" iMac with the razer Naga Gaming Mouse. I installed all drivers from RazerZone. Each time I start my iMac my razer naga doesn't track, all the mouse buttons work but it just doesn't track, its really weird because I have been using this mouse for a month now and never got this problem until I think I started to put my IMac to sleep.
I just turned on my new 27" iMac and can't seem to get the mouse to go any faster. I've got it turned up all the way on the tracking speed. This display is huge and I don't like having to pick up the mouse just so I can get to the other side of the screen.
Would like to know how do i disable my trackpad while using usb mouse while in Windows 7 Mode through Bootcamp.Didn't have any problem disabling in Mac OS X but am facing this problem when i use Win 7.Am using a 2011 Macbook Pro, Windows 7 Pro Through Bootcamp.
Does anyone own or have used the Wacom Bamboo track pad as an alterative to a Magic Mouse or trackball?I checked out the Magic Mouse and did not like it but could probably get used to it, the Apple keyboard I could never get used to and would keep my old clunky keyboard that I am used to using since forever.
Have been using a Kensington trackball for the last 10 years, not the same one , but it finially gave up the ghost and thought the new mouse could replace it but I don't think so. This Bamboo trackpad does look interesting though but is a little an the large side.[URL]
When I start up my 2010 Macbook Pro now, the fan starts running as soon as the spinning gear appears below the apple logo, the boot up is insanely slow, the mouse doesn't track well with my trackpad movements, and trying to open programs often leads to a non-responsive program with the pinwheel of death spinning for minutes at a time. I try to shut it down (takes approx. 20 min. now) and when the screen goes black, the fan continues full blast. After that I can boot up the computer and it runs normally, but the whole process takes about 50 minutes longer than it should, especially with a relatively new SSD (~ 8 months old).
It loads well enough in safe boot, and I've tried cutting out most of the apps that launch at startup with poor results. I've also tried resetting the SMC with equally poor results.
Here's my Etresoft report as well. etreCheck version: 1.9.15 (52)Report generated August 27, 2014 at 10:51:10 AM MDT Hardware Information: ? MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2010) (Verified) MacBook Pro - model: MacBookPro7,1 1 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo CPU: 2 cores 4 GB RAM

I am using this wired mighty mouse for the pass 6 months and recently it had a problem regarding on the track ball... the track ball is able to scroll up just like normal... but when scroll down, it is no longer as sensitive as scrolling up...
i just bought it and am having a little trouble exporting a track i made. i didnt do much to it, just cut it and can not figure out how to export. i go to the export option and then try and save it to the desktop but it is not there when i go to find it
Why in the world would Apple make the track pad LESS useful in OS Lion? I hate that I can't g back to the top of a web page with a singe swipe. And of course all the other gestures are totally reversed. IMHO, this was not an improvement.
I am using MacBook Air with OSX Lion. I need to input Chinese characters using the track pad and I have set it up in the Preference > Language.
I called out Pages, started the track pad inputing area. I write on the track pad, it can display the stroke I write on the pad and suggested the characters. Then I choose the charater for input. However, nothing was input to the pages. The curser did not move. If I input using the keyboard, it is OK to input what I type. It just did not respond to the track pad.
Info: MacBook Air (11-inch Late 2010), Mac OS X (10.7.4)
have a new macbook pro.... the track pad is being weird ... i can't click and drag something, and i can't select anything on drop down menus. I can do these things no problem with my pen and tablet, but not with the track pad. this is inconvenient to say the least.
My Macbook Air (running lion) is consuming a large amount of bandwidth. Yesterday 20GB of data were uplodaded. I don't know which program(s) is doing it. I'm not doing any of the obvious things that might lead to such usage: I don't use torrents, watch internet movies, etc. Even when I'm doing nothing, or have the browsers closed, I'm uploading between 32 kbs and sometimes 3 mbps. Activity monitor shows total network usage, but it doesn't break it down by program. Is there a way to make activity monitor do that? I've installed little snitch, but no program that it tracks is taking up enough bandwidth to account for the usage I'm seeing.
Right after OSX update on May 15, 2012, the pairing of my wireless trackpad to the desktop is no longer working. First the bluetooth found my trackpad. After clicking "continue", the box showed: "No trackpad found The pariing attempt was unsuccessful, click "continue" to try again. I've been trying for several times. Still not working!
basically my wallpaper image flashes and any windows I have minimized to the Dock expand whenever iTunes changes tracks. It's not a huge problem, but it can be a bit of a pain (there, it just happened again, I had to minize stuff in order to get back to this window).
P.S.: I listed the topic under Lion because it never happened before I upgraded to it.
Now i have OS LION, my mouse scrolls opposite to my old OS SL when i scroll up, screen pages go down... I can see why they did this, but I dont like it. How do i edit the mouse to scroll the old way, so down swipe means screen pages down, not some mirror image
I use my iMac for business. So even if the mouse loses connection once a day, that it 1 time too many. Some days it loses connection 2 to 3 times a day. When it does this, I go into system prefs/mouse and it says no mouse found. Sometimes it will find my mouse, then it after searching for a minute or 2, goes back to no mouse found and searching.
Sometimes it finds the mouse and sometimes it does not. Right now, I am using a hard wired mouse. Its been about 5 minutes and its still not finding my apple mouse. In fact, this all started after I replaced the original batteries. The mouse was working flawlessly up until that point. Its a brand new 27" IMac I got Christmas 2011, so its running Lion.
I just upgraded to Lion and now the scroll button scrolls backwards. When I scroll away from myself, it scrolls down the page and when I scroll towards myself it scrolls up the page. Just the opposite of what it did before the upgrade. I'm using a Microsoft Mobile Mouse 4000
Ok, so ive had this problem for a few months now and it has led me to the point where my mac was in storage and i havent touched it in a month or two. What happens is no matter what i am doing my mouse will move around the screen clicking randomly and basically doing whatever it wants. i have looked into the problem and other people have similiar issues but not the same. i can be across the room from my mac with the screen on, and the mouse will still move around and click and open countless folders even though no one at all is even near the computer. today when i took the mac out to see if there was a software update available (which there was) the mouse was not moving around or jumping at all througout the entire update. After the update it is now yet again jumpin around and clicking wherever it wants. Also its not just once in a while it is 24/7 it has made my mac unable to be used because you cant really control the mouse for more than a second at a time. my whole screen is now full of untitled folders..
Every now and again my Mac Mini will freeze except whatever audio is currently playing will continue to play until end of file is reached (ie, the next track comes on iTunes) and the mouse cursor moves but the rest of the GUI is frozen, not allowing anything to be clicked, no keyboard interaction, and nothing else on the screen gets updated (the clock stays at whatever minute mark the computer froze at). I can SSH into the machine with Terminal on a different computer and poke around but I can't figure out where to take it from there. I've tried looking at processes with top and performing 'kill -9 pid' but I'm never able to bring the machine back without a hard reset.
Through the kill command I've tried quitting the Dock, Finder, any "big" programs I'm running (eg Logic Pro), but none has ever recovered my system.
