What exactly is it doing? I have noticed that the touch pad on the ibooks is sometimes a bit non responsive if the system is really busy.

This happens usually when you are typing and your wrist accidently brushes against the trackpad. The shareware program Sidetrack can address this issue by setting trackpad delays while using the keyboard as well as allow trackpad scrolling.
