Me too. It's random though. Sometimes it remembers, sometime it doesn't. Very frustrating.

Same problem. Why does Apple not respond to these discussions?

Same problem over here. Running a MacOSX 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard) on a MacBook Pro from 2009. The same problem has been discussed elswhere on this forum (https://discussions.apple.com/thread/2756806?start=30&tstart=0) but so far no solution has been found. Come on guys, this can't be that hard. Get on it!

Bumping the subject, have been having the same issue on m MBP from 2010 OS 10.6.8.
Didn't have it the first year or so, but for the past few months I started loosing the 'one finger; tap to click and secondary clock' settings after restarting. To me it also occurs randomly, very annoying!
Won't be upgradiong to Lion soon, so dear Apple: I need a FIX!

Same exact problem for me. Everytime I restart I have to go into the system preferences and spend 1 minute changing my trackpad settings.
1 minute x everytime I restart = many minutes of my life.

I don't know if this will be helpful in identifying a fix, but I've noticed it seems to happen in and around 2 events.
1.) Plugging / unplugging my macbook into a display using an HDMI > Thunderbolt adapter
2.) Using the Magic Mouse via Bluetooth.

I have been having the same trackpad preference problem on my MacBook 10.6.8 . . .
I am not using any particular application that is special and should create a conflict . . . none of the ones anyone else has mentioned . . .
It seems that the issue usually happens when I reboot my computer . . . occasionally when I'm already in and using it . . .
It's annoying . . .

Same problem. Macbook Pro from 2010 running 10.6.8. It does seem to happen after reboot. Very annoying!!! I'm glad it's not just me though.

I am also experiencing this problem for months. It just came out of nowhere, I thought an update would solve the problem but did nothing. Today I finally googled "touch to click macbook reset" and have found no fix. This is a bit ridiculous.

Hi kfrombk, check out Don's post here. You'll want to delete the following file from your preferences folder. Worked for me! (keeping fingers crossed it stays that way...)
