    First of all, I appologise for my ignorance, however, I thought I'd share this:

    I have a 1 year old Macbook 5,1. Standard spec, no upgraded HDD. Console is spewing out this error, but it seems as though a new error occurs whenever I try to make a multitouch gesture.

    I say try, as after some time (haven't quite worked out how long, and sometimes not at all) multitouch gestures beyond 2 finger scrolling cease to function. I am almost certain that the error relates to this. I can only hope that this is a software issue, as I've had the 1 year call from apple. As I mentioned, for the vast majority of the time, the trackpad works as it should and I have not experienced any lockups due to this.

    My keyboard has always functioned as normal, it is only multitouch gestures on the trackpad that have been affected.

    I'm sorry I cannot be more specific with the cause of the change. I'm trying to figure it out (I can't play with exposé now, which is rather upsetting).

    I also have this problem.
    Right now I have ”2009-11-28 13.13.44 /usr/libexec/hidd[40] IOHIDEventQueueEnqueue: Error enqueuing memory. (0xe00002e8) ” being spammed in the system.log and I can't do any multitouch trackpad things except for two finger scrolling.

    Is it a third party software we all use that causes this to happen?
    Otherwise the ”Apple makes both the hardware and the software, so everything works so well” talk is growing thin...

    I also have this problem on my MacBook Pro 5,1 and it's VERY annoying. Activity monitor shows very low CPU utilisation, and HDD reads/writes don't seem to be anything special (e.g. 1MB/s).

    Thanks to Clive Jevons for his attempt at posting a script that watches for and kills the hidd daemon that seems to be causing this problem. I don't know enough about Terminal scripts to use it (and I note he said the auto-formatting screwed up the scripts anyway). However, I did find this terminal command fixed the problem:

    sudo killall hidd

    OS X then kills off the hidd daemon and restarts it afterwards automatically. I noticed after issuing that command that speed was restored to the system and CPU utilisation jumped up -- in this case a good thing, because the hidd daemon seems to be restricting the system's ability to make use of the CPU resources.

    Since we've tracked it down to being to do somehow with the hidd daemon which deals with keyboard and mouse interaction, I wonder what software other people might have in common with me? I have MultiClutch installed, which interacts with multitouch actions. Some other add-ons that might possibly interact: SmartSleep, and SMCFanControl.

    I think it is happen on the OS itself. Mine is Macbook 6,1, having the same problem too. I try to figure out is the wifi driver that I installed previously cause the problem.
  • hunterfighter Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    After I remove the driver that I installed recently, my multitouch is working fine and hidd error does not appear anymore. Maybe there is an incompatible issue for the driver with OS X?
  • BlackRadius Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    I noticed this happening in the system.log last night while not connected to any network. I corrected it by killing the WindowServer Daemon ( kill -9 ) and letting it automatically respawn. It worked consistently. This morning after logging in (connected to network), the issue is not happening. I'm wondering if it's an active desktop artifact
  • ghillo Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    hi,
    i've the same problem, my MBP (late 2008)
    sistematically crashes (it not crashes, but the keyboard and the touchpad become unusable) when i try to log out or switch between user.
    well, if i remove some account and use only one account, the problem seems solved and don't happen anymore!!!

    It seems a bug... may be related to my bluetooth Logitech mouse or SL.

    I hope Apple is going to resolve it fast, because this solution is a bit too much dramatic...
    bye
  • Peter Knapp Level 4 Level 4 (1,490 points)
    I get this error as well:

    06/12/2009 11:41:51 /usr/libexec/hidd[34] IOHIDEventQueueEnqueue: Error enqueuing memory. (0xe00002e8)

    However, I just discovered it's to do with the trackpad.

    If I just move my finger across the trackpad, the above message gets posted to the console over and over again (I can watch it in real time).

    However, I'm doing heavy encoding with Toast right now, so that may have something to do with it.
  • vlestat Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    I can replicate this specific problem for my unibody macbook (1st). If I connect a bluetooth Logitech V470 with the Logitech software installed (not sure if that matters at all) and then use my multitouch trackpad, tonnes of IOHID errors. As soon as I shut down IOHID in terminal, everything is fine.

    When is Apple going to fix this? It seems clear that it is a multitouch driver issue. Running 10.6.2

  • ghillo Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    Yes, I've a bluetooth Logitech V470 mouse too.
    I'm also trying to replicate the problem and find the cause.
    Now, after many tests, the system seems stable and after a day of work I couldn't see any strange behavior.
    The major things that I've changed are:
    1. use only one account (all others accounts removed)
    2. uninstalled VmWare (used for a Windows virtual machine, now i'm using Parallels)
    3. Snow Leopard updates of this morning...

    I hope it works
  • Daniel Warne Level 1 Level 1 (50 points)
    I wonder if the commonality here is having a Logitech mouse..? I also had one on my MBP that had this problem (since replaced with a new one, and I'm not using the Logitech mouse on the new one.)

    However, most people (including me) with this problem do seem to be using first-generation unibodies, so I suspect it's a hardware or firmware issue. It is certainly not a problem in the new machine I got, which is a current-gen unibody (5,3).
  • JussiMacShow Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    I've got a late -08 MB Pro that occasionally hangs for a couple of minutes when I logout. Eventually the login screen appears, but doesn't respond to any input ...
    Snow leopard, fresh install, all updates installed e.t.c ...

    I've also got a Logitech V470, and logitech control center installed ...

    When this happens the logs fill up with the 'IOHIDEventQueueEnqueue: Error enqueuing memory. (0xe00002e8)' messages ...

    Annoying ...
  • SteveGuess Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    Hello,

    I always bought a new MacBook Pro 2 weeks ago. I really love Mac OSX but I also have a big problem. Sometimes my screen just freezes. Sound, monitor and mouse do not react anymore. I only recognized this freezes when Win7 was running (VMWare Fusion 3.0.1). Maybe this program could be the reason for the freezes but I'm not sure.

    Could it be a hardware problem too? Hardware test didn't show any errors.
    Maybe you can help me .

    Last freeze was at 10:24. Here is some log:

    HI everyone. Same problem here with the Console spewing massive numbers of the HID daemon error whenever I use the trackpad. Mac is a 2.5 GHz MBP (ID 4,1) from mid-2008 running 10.6.2 Snow Leopard. All other systems normal except for this issue. No wierd software or crapware onboard except that I, also, have VMWare Fusion installed and I notice also that several others on this list do also.

    VMWare seems to be causing other issues (visible in Console) which have to do with networking problems and, I believe, are also causing the Mac to hang on Restart/Shutdown at the blue screen, as others have noticed, since Mac OS seems unable to unmount a couple of directories and hangs while waiting. Most people, including myself, tend to become impatient and force restart at that point, but actually if you wait about 10 minutes, the thing will often complete the Restart/Shutdown routine.

    Anyway, that may all be by-the-bye. The issue of the unresponsive multi-touch trackpad (except for two-finger scrolling) is unmistakably linked to this HID daemon memory error. It does not have to do with 500GB drives or Hitachi, IMO, nor Logitec mice, as I have neither. I am using a 256GB Samsung SSD and only the built-in trackpad and the only USB device attached is a small USB Novatel MC727 WWAN modem.

    I'll write again if I find anything else out, but I hope an Apple engineer will soon come across this thread and work out a fix!

    Happy New Year to all, BTW!
  • builtinbc Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    I had the same problem on a 2.8 Ghz MacBook Pro 5,2 (17-inch, Mid 2009), but FIXED IT successfully by force-quitting WindowServer (a solution that worked for one other user who's posted here some time ago).

    The entry occurred every time there was any trackpad activity, so I'm fairly certain it originated with the trackpad handler or USB controller.

    It started after upgrading from the last release of Leopard to Snow Leopard (10.6.2) and then upgrading from Parallels Desktop 4 to Desktop 5 5.0.9308. I have appended the system.log entries around the crash, which suggest it is related to the Parallels upgrade in some way (I doubt that the Cisco VPN error is relevant, for a variety of reasons).

    In reconfiguring Parallels after the upgrade, I did not make any changes to the keyboard, USB, or trackpad settings (it may be relevant that Parallels 5 does have new options for enabling Gestures and Apple Remote, which I think are turned on by default). I did increase video RAM from 128 to 256 MB as recommended for Parallels 5, and also set Main Memory to 512 MB.

    In any event, after force-quitting WindowServer and logging back in, the error has not reappeared, even after I relaunched Parallels and played around with it some. As this may work for other users who are not familiar with Activity Monitor, proceed as follows (try at your own risk)!

    First, MAKE SURE YOU HAVE SAVED ALL OPEN DOCUMENTS AND QUIT ALL OPEN APPLICATIONS, as quitting WindowServer will immediately force log out, and otherwise you will lose data!!!

    Launch Activity Monitor in the Utilities folder.
    Type "WindowServer" in the "String Matching" field of Activity Monitor, making sure that "All Processes" or "Other User Processes" is selected in the popup next to it).
    Click "WindowServer" (which should now be the only process displayed) to select it.
    Click the red "Quit Process" button and choose "Force Quit".

    Hope this works for you also!
