Let me know how you manage to get it fixed, I have a feeling I'll be taking it to the local repair shop, mines getting worse by the day.Macbook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.8), 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

Currently Being ModeratedAug 10, 2010 9:52 PM (in response to jzisson)I have had the same problem. I think mine was caused by either the upgrade to 10.6.4 or the magic trackpad update. Did you download the magic trackpad update which adds functions to the touch-sensitive trackpad? I have tried all sorts of suggested remedies on the forums, but nothing has worked.
I know it's a software issue because when I decided to erase my drive and load 10.6.1, the trackpad worked fine. I noticed the problem with the "physical" clicks after loading 10.6.4 and the magic trackpad update.
I am using the touch-sensitive functions till a solution comes up. It's just annoying because sometimes I'd rather do a physical click. (I get the feeling that Apple is dictating the way of the future for completely touch-sensitive trackpads without the "hard" or physical clicks.)MacBook Pro 13" unibody, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
