Currently Being ModeratedAug 20, 2010 1:45 PM (in response to jryberg)Well, I thought this somehow didn't affect iMovie, but today it started while I was
IN iMovie. I couldn't move the cursor without resizing the windows. Also, while it's doing this, doing things that normally require ONE click, requires TWO. If that's any help.
Am I the only one with this problem? It seems to start for no reason.New Macbook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.6), 4GB Ram
Currently Being ModeratedAug 21, 2010 12:40 PM (in response to jryberg)You are not the only one. My doesn't happen as frequently as yours does, but once every couple months. Like right now. I hadn't noticed the double click part of the situation, but that is also true for me. Doesn't seem to be associated with any particular program.MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
Currently Being ModeratedAug 21, 2010 3:14 PM (in response to tarredlog)Thanks for the reply. Mine just did it again WHILE I WAS READING YOUR MESSAGE IN MY EMAIL. Mine does it twice a day now.
I suppose somebody at Apple will figure this out.

Currently Being ModeratedOct 5, 2010 11:33 AM (in response to relewis1)1. I have posted the same question twice, really, so I'll say this one's answered.
2. The "very quick fix" is a one-finger double-tap on the pad. But why the
problem happens in the first place, has not been answered, right?New Macbook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.6), 4GB Ram
Currently Being ModeratedOct 5, 2010 11:34 PM (in response to jryberg)Well, it looks like you accidentally invoke the function where you can drag&tap (don't exactly recall what it's called again). I've done such myself, and keep doing so.
It's pretty annoying, I've turned it off, but apparently you can't really turn it off. Seems something Apple should work on in another software update
Your quick fix is the only thing that worksMBP 2010, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
