I think fearlessfreap is right. Even on PC Laptops with a Trackpad I have had that happen all the time.

i've had that problem on many of my notebooks due to the touchpad. you don't realize it but just a stray tap can screw everything up.

From a G4 400MHz to an Intel Mac Mini to iMac Core Duo to a Macbook Pro 2.6GHz.............gotta love Apple!

There is an option in the prefrences to turn off acidental trackpad input which I guess would stop the problem but I haven't used it so I'm not sure how well it works.
