: Trackpad Problems with Snow Leopard

Hey everyone,

I'm having a problem with my trackpad since I upgraded to Snow Leopard. I have a new 13" MBP 2.53 GHz with 4 GB of RAM.

My problem is that the three and four finger gestures stop working sporadically. I can't really find any consistency - it's just sometimes when I turn on my computer the three and four finger gestures don't work at all, and sometimes when I turn it on they do. Restarting doesn't seem to fix the problem either.

It's even more weird because the two finger gestures (scrolling, pinching, etc.) always work - it is just the three and four fingers movements (back/forward in Safari, Exposť, etc.) that don't work.

I did not experience this problem until I upgraded to Snow Leopard.

Is anyone else having this problem? Any fixes?

Thanks!

I have exactly the same problem, and I don't find any way to solve it... Probably an isolated issue !

10.6.2 is out and supposedly addresses that issue.
