Weird things happening in the last 24 hours, but I'll limit this post to one issue.

Last night, while moving my MacBook Pro, I heard the drive break engage. Okay, that's normal. But then the tack pad would no longer click on anything. It would move the cursor, but that's all. So, I Restarted twice. Still no tack pad click. Then, just for the heck of it, I decided to try my bluetooth tack pad. That worked normally and then the tack pad on the lap top started working.

Anybody ever had this occur? My search of "tack pad" and "tack pad glitch" turned up zero.

Thanks!

Searching "trackpad won't register click" brings back several instances. No silver bullet but I'd start with a PRAM reset
