Currently Being ModeratedMay 22, 2006 9:28 PM (in response to sgrin77)The trackpad on mine is 'sticky' too, the cursor wont move on command and I have to basically rub the pad to get a response out of it after a few seconds. It's completely sporadic with no explanation or resolution.
I also have the moo, the whine, the outrageous heat, and the incredibly sharp casing.

Currently Being ModeratedMay 28, 2006 12:05 AM (in response to kaidomac)My wife is having this problem, and unfortunately I am away, and can not sit down with the machine, and try and figure this thing out. I tried going through all of the preferences with her, and nothing helped. If anyone has a real solution to this, please help.MacBook, Mac OS X (10.4.5)
Currently Being ModeratedJun 3, 2006 6:29 AM (in response to sgrin77)I had the same problem, but I unchecked the "Ignore accidental track pad input" in the KeyBoard and Mouse Preference pane. Now it doesn't do that anymore.
Try it. It worked for me.MacBook, Mac OS X (10.4.6)

Currently Being ModeratedAug 18, 2006 3:49 PM (in response to panacea)I have this new MacBook 10.4.7.
The trackpad is so sensitive, I can't efficentially type, or even stay in a program. If the pad passes an application on the doc, it opens.
Yes, I did the preferences, and the "ignore" is not working. I could breathe on this thing and it will go to a place I have not intended.
Yes, I have appleworks, and called them. They told me to take out the battery, while the computer was off, and wait. Then re-install the battery, and wait. Then start the computer. This was a waste of time.
I spent more time, wonderering where my cursor is, I try to highlight and delete in writing and the cursor won't perform.
I also find the click button of the track pad hard and diffiult to use. This is my 4th laptop by Apple. This has never been a problem.
Also, I can I post my own questions? I have not found a place that says, new topic or new question.
