    well i just found out, instead of changing the upper case, you need to remove the battery and look for a screw under the trackpad, it a 3 cut screw so just tighten that, and it works perfect now.

Apple menu (top left) > System Preference > Trackpad.
Is were you find the settings for the trackpad. You will need to have to find your sweat stop within the settings. play around with the settings.

Macnumber


in the apple drop down menu there is a thing that says about this Mac. It will pop up a screen with some basic info, if you click on the part that says version it will show you the serial number. Cut and paste that info into google or go to a mac website that identifies machines by the serial number. Should be easy to find with a google search. Sometimes they give models like 5,1 or 6,2 etc. Sometimes you have to actually look and try before you can get the answer you want.

I have a MacBook late 2009 2.26 unibody. I had to find that out the same way I just described so I could find parts. You can also go to ifixit.com and see if that helps to id your machine.

lots of cable problems during that period. Most were covered by recall that was not published like the car recalls ... just handled as they were brought into the Apple Repair spots. Mine was replaced along with new case and new fan.

I got my Macbook Pro December of 2009, so it is the most recent model as of then. A couple of weeks ago I noticed the upper half and right hand side of the trackpad has become stuck, meaning I can't click...


As the Macbook is under a year old it is still covered by a one year warranty unless you took out AppleCare so what I would do is take it back to an Apple Store or go to the Apple webpages and click on support and you will be able to arrange for it to be repaired. Hope this helps.

Can I add backlight to my 13 inch macbook (unibody)?


Do you mean the behind the keyboard backlight or something else?
As far as I'm aware only the macbook Pro models have KB backlighting so without a motherboard change you are probably out of luck

Macbook goes to sleep and doesn't wake up unless I do a hard reboot.


I have seen this caused by having a mouse plugged into mine. I have removed the mouse and touch the touchpad and it has come up from sleep.

That very well may not be your problem.

Here is the procedure that is recommend from Apple to help with the not waking from sleep problem. I included both methods as it is not clear which macbook you have. I also included the link to the article at the bottom.

The System Management Controller is an integrated circuit (computer chip) that is on the logic board of the computer. As the name implies, it is responsible for power management of the computer. It controls backlighting, hard disk spin down, sleep and wake, some charging aspects, trackpad control, and some input/output as it relates to the computer sleeping.

Over time, the settings in the System Management Controller may become unusable, which can result in operational anomalies with the computer. Examples include not turning on, not waking from sleep, not charging the battery, or not recognizing the AC Adapter, among others.

MacBook (13 inch, Late 2008), MacBook Pro (15-inch, Early 2008), and MacBook Pro (17-inch, Early 2008)
  1. If the computer is on, turn it off.
  2. Disconnect the AC adapter and remove the computer's battery.
  3. Press and hold the power button for 5 seconds and then release the button.
  4. Reconnect the battery and AC Adapter.
  5. Press the power button to restart the computer
Note: Starting with MacBook Pro (Late 2008) and MacBook (Late 2008) models, you may instead use the reset method for MacBook Air (below) to reset the SMC. All earlier models of MacBook and MacBook Pro must use the method described above, which involves removing the battery.
MacBook Air and MacBook Pro (Late 2008 and later)
  1. If the computer is on, turn it off by choosing Shutdown from the Apple () menu.
  2. Connect the power adapter to a working power source.
  3. On the built-in keyboard, press (left) Shift-Control-Option along with the power button once.
  4. Wait 5 seconds and press the power button to start the computer.
Note: You must use the keys on the left side of the built-in keyboard.


Here is the link to the article at the Apple support site.

Tap feature on MAcbook 2.4Ghz 2GB


I am running mac OS 10.5.5 and Win XP using parallels.  You need to make sure the system preferences in the mac OS to allow two fingers for secondary click using the trackpad. This allows you to right click in Win XP.
I find using two fingers and clicking the button works more reliably in windows xp.  I usually have to try two finger tapping a few times.

To right click by tapping: Go to System Preferences and choose Keyboard & Mouse.  Select "Clicking" and "Tap trackpad using two fingers for secondary click". This allows you to tap the trackpad with two fingers side by side to get the "right click" effect.  You can also right click without tapping with this setting.

To right click without tapping:
Go to System Preferences and choose Keyboard & Mouse.  Select "For secondary clicks, place two fingers on the trackpad then click the button". This allows you to right click by placing two fingers on the trackpad and then clicking the mouse button. 0acf97a.png
