Macbook Pro Trackpad

Hey all,

I noticed that when using my Macbook Pro Keyboard and Trackpad the Trackpad is sometimes a little slow to react to my finger input.

Is this normal? and can be fixed?

Many thanks.

Regards,
Alan

Mine too. But I have bigger problems than that. I'm having a boohoo day here.

Keep the trackpad very clean and your palms/fingers as well; especially sweat-free. I can't recall right off the top of my head, but there may be a sensitivity control option under System Preferences to control the sensitivity of the trackpad.

No sensitivity per se, but an interesting "Ignore accidental trackpad input" option, which is ticked by default. Hrm, how does Apple know what is accidental? :-)

That accidental option has been there in the past few iterations of PowerBooks too and you want it checked. Otherwise your cursor will be jumping around like a squirrel on speed.

As I recall, the "ignore accidental trackpad input" means that if you are typing, the trackpad is depressed until you stop. Works for me!
