Sounds like a hardware problem, you should take your Macbook to Apple for repair.

This is very odd. I just had this problem today.
I used to be able to just rest my arm/elbow/palm on the area next to the trackpad and there won't be any problem.
Now, I got this... :\
Alright. I'll check! Thanks!

What possessed you to apply pressure?
Thank you. As I said, I'll try and get it checked.
While watching a video, being bored, or things similar, I tend to lie on my hand, and my elbow usually end up on that area.
I usually just apply a small amount of pressure, like pressing a doorbell, or lying against a wall. That's the minimum about of pressure I apply.

One minute, my computer crashed, and started to beep SOS, like this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KB9oEyI6tNM
Apparently, after I unscrewed the Macbook hardware thingy, on the bottom, (Forgot the terminology. XD)
I noticed it was disgustingly filled with dust.
I used compressed air to clean it carefully. I noticed that the fan was covered in dust as well. Carefully cleaned it a bit.
Lastly, right before I decided to stop, I noticed that there was a screw on the circuit board. Chances are 1/10000.
I was shocked. I thought at first it was part of the circuit, but my mind obviosuly says it isn't.
I carefully took it out, and looked for a spot to put the screw back, which I found an area roughly a finger away from the circuit board, and screwed it in.
I closed it up, and tada! It works as a charm.
Thank you for all your support guys, and I really appreciate it. I thought my laptop was going to be goner!
