I downloaded OSX Lion two nights ago and noticed that my Magic trackpad is not working properly in Lion. The trackpad on my Macbook Pro works as it should, but the Magic trackpad does not seem to be fully compatible with the new OS and Mission Control. The Magic trackpad will not switch between full-screen apps with the four finger swipe.


I also noticed that the keyboard stays lit even when I turn off the "automatically illuminate keyboard in low light" option. It lights up regardless.


Has anybody else experienced these issues? Is there something that can be done to address these issues?


I love the new features of OSX Lion, but it definitely has its bugs. I hope Apple offers updates to address these problems soon!

Mac OS X (10.7)
