I would like to highlight that my trackpad is giving me issues again.
After cleaning it with dampcloth, it seemed to have worked well for a few weeks and
now its not responsive again.
I could not click and drag files/apps as I usually could.
Anyone has a solution ?

I have a MacBook Pro and my trackpad is not responding properly. It just happend... I try to make the cursor move... it's really hard. I cleaned it just like you said, but it doesn't help. I had to install a remote mouse on my iPhone so I could use my phone as trackpad. I've had apple computers for 15 years now and never had issues with them before. I've never had to take any of my computers to a workshop. I'm really mad, dissapointed... I need my trackpad to work!!!!!! I have work to do!!!!

Reset SMC http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3964
if that doesn't help, create or log into another administrator user account on your MBP. If the issue doesn't happen over there, it's likely preference related. If it does it's likely hardware or operating system related. You can try reinstalling your OS.
First try archive and install, http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1710
if that doesn't resolve it try erase and install http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3910
If it still happens after erase and install you likely have a hardware issue, and your computer will need to be serviced.

You won't believe why my trackpad wasn't working. I live on a penthouse... it get very windy sometimes and my computer desk is right by the window. Well if it's windy and I leave the windows open my trackpad doesn't work. If I close the windows it starts working again just fine. I tried opening and closing the windows and that's what happened, but only if windy. WEIRD!!!

I can't believe I just found this-- I was looking for help because the trackpad on my macbook pro 15" is not working properly-- BUT only when it's in my bedroom, which is quite cold/ chilly drafty from air con system. When the computer is on my desk downstairs, there's no problem.
I wondering if it's the metal casing making the computer too cold to operate?? I wish this computer had a plastic case, it's the one thing I really miss from my old macbook (not pro).

I'm noticing problems with my trackpad registering clicks when it's cold. As soon as the computer warms up after about 5 minutes it's fine. This never happened before in my almost 2 years of owning this thing, so I hope it's not an issue that's going to progress and get worse
