Hi, This has probably been covered before, but a quick search hasn't really helped, and there is a lot to read through to be honest!

Anyway I have the alu macbook 15" with the glass track pad. It is a dream, and I love the machine, and it was until recently flawless!

Anyway, recently the track pad has stopped registering physical clicks...which means it's hard to click and drag anything the way I'm used to. All the other gestures and tap clicking works, just not the physical button.

Any ideas?

Thanks for the reply.

I'm running Leopard 10.5.8 at the moment - and it physically clicks, it just does nothing. If i click on something by pressing the button it does absolutely nothing. If I tap the trackpad it'll select something..

*edit* And It was restarted earlier today..
QUOTE Thanks
