I've noticed when i use my track pad somehow it also clicks the mouse without me even touching it. It's extremely annoying, and i can't figure out why it's doing it. Has anyone else experienced this problem? I just don't get it. i'll be scrolling the page using the trackpad and all of a sudden it will start highlighting some of the text. when i'm mousing through the finder it will launch apps all without clicking the mouse. I have a feeling i'll have to take it in to get looked at, but has anyone else seen this behavior?

thanks,
john

G'day johnmac & welcome to Mac-Forums.

I have a Desktop Mac so I don't have 1st hand experience but thought I'd mention that a play around in the mouse/trackpad Prefs may shed some further light???

go into system preferences and go to keyboard and mouse.. then click on the second tab which is trackpad and play with those settings.
