Macbook Trackpad Dragging
I have a 13" Aluminium Macbook, the one before it was called the pro.

After about 10-15 mins of use mouse is always in drag mode if that makes sense. Its not physically stuck down and I'm pretty sure its not a hardware fault as restarting the laptop fixes it. Its really annoying, any idea whats wrong??

I am sure you have already tried this but have you gone in to System Preferences and Trackpad .. and uncheked the Dragging and or the Drag Lock?

There is no dirt build up on your track pad?

I have cleaned it with alcohol wipes and have had a good look and im 99% sure its not hardware. It may have started after the last firmware update, the one added the new scrolling thing.

Thats for your help, hope someone can sort it :)
