I purchased a wireless mouse from the apple store today. The thing installed fine. Then I tried to use the trackpad, no joy. I thought maybe something wrong went to preferences and nothing checked to prevent me using trackpad. Ok I figured remove the mouse pairing and hope trackpad comes back, no joy. In fact I have tried everything I know to no avail. So I am looking for suggestions to either
1. Get the trackpad working again with the Wireless Mouse (so if mouse is not there it works)
2. Delete the Bluetooth Mouse altogether (without rebuilding from the factory disks from scratch!).
Any keen helpers out there?

Go to system preferences. Click Keyboard and Mouse. Click Trackpad. Uncheck "Ignore trackpad when mouse is present." If I remember correctly, there is a bug where that feature does not work.
