Step one: plug in a mouse. Does that work normally?

trackpad freezes
i have used my magic trackpad which works most of the time but still does the same on occasions,have not tried a wired mouse though.Should still be able to use the trackpad though.

I'm not suggesting that as a cure or solution, just the first step in troubleshooting. I've only had my Magic Trackpad for a couple of months but it has never given me any trouble. Seeing if a wired mouse responds normally will let us know if the problem is with the trackpad or the OS generally.
