    You need to call Apple pronto. You can generally get a replacement within the first seven days, but after that they'll only offer to fix it.

    Make sure your trackpad is clean. It's sensitive to wet and/or greasy fingers, and a little invisible dirt, grease, whatever can make the trackpad squirrelly.

    You have 90 days of phone support and a year of technical support, if anything goes wrong, even the stupidest thing. Call apple, there is a reason why they have that support. My keyboard/trackpad died about 36 hours after I got my powerbook in May. The first sign of something going wrong, I called apple and had my powerbook back from being fixed in 5 days.
