    The trackpad it supposed to Click. That is how you select and run programs.


    If you mean when you just slide your finger/s arcoss it then it is moving around and needs to looked at by a Apple repair center. There is nothing a End User can do to correct this.

    Opps I meant when I click it. It's makes this weird sound it sound like a double click. But I only click it once.

    I had a similar problem and just found a fix for it.


    My problem was that on one spot, the clicking seemed muffled, as if something was stuck underneath the trackpad, and near that spot, one time out of two, the click was twice as loud as normal, like it was "unsticking" something.


    Anyways, I read that you could apply a good amount of pressure (as in push hard) on the whole trackpad (I used 6 fingers) for 2-3 seconds to fix this. It worked for me. I also read about gently hitting it with your fist... don't know if it works, but I didn't quite want to hit my MBP with my fist...
