Magic Mouse click not working

I have a magic mouse, with a MBP and 10.6.1 and the wireless mouse update installed.
The mouse more or less works if "Secondary click" is checked. If I uncheck it, clicking does nothing. The mouse moves and scrolling works, but clicking has no effect.
Also with "Secondary click" checked, if any part of my hand is touching the top surface of the mouse, I get a right-click when I click - makes the grip kind of awkward.
Tried re-installing the software update.
Any ideas? Thx.

Not sure why it worked this time, but I deleted
from the User preference folder again, and now the mouse is behaving as normal. I did not touch the .globalpreferences file.
I did clean all the system/user caches (using Cache Out X), and then deleted this file again, but now the behavior seems correct
- with Secondary Click deslected, the surface acts as one big single click button
- with Secondary Click selected, it acts as a two button mouse
- in Secondary Click mode, resting your second finger on the contexual side surface while clicking on the single click side surface does not interfere with the single click as it had before
- in Secondary click mode, you need to lift your finger off the single click side when clicking the contextual button side, or it will not register as a contexual click. I presume this is expected behavior, as it is physically a one-button mouse, and Apple opted for a two-finger click to be interpreted as the more common single click request.
Hope this helps some

  • My magic mouse does not work with OS X Mountain Lion?

    My magic mouse does not work the direction of vertical displacement with the update OS X Mountain Lion?

    You are correct that you cannot install version 5.x of the AirPort Utility on OS X Mountain Lion. However, once installed it will run just fine. One workaround is to extract the utility directly from the disk image (.dmg) file.
    Here are the basic steps to install version 5.6 under Mountain Lion using CharlesSoft's Pacifist:
    If you haven't already download the AirPort Utility disk image file directly from Apple Support Download
    Place the resultant AirPortUtility56.dmg file onto your Mac's Desktop.
    Run Pacifist.
    Click on the Open Package option. Find the disk image file that you just placed on your desktop, and then, click on Open.
    The utility is located as follows: Contents of AirPortUtility56.dmg > Contents of AirPortUtility56.pkg > Contents of AirPortUtility56Lion.pkg > Applications > Utilities > AirPort Utility
    Drag AirPort Utility to your Mac's /Applications/Utilities folder.
    You can now run the AirPort Utility from the Utilities folder.

  • Magic Mouse Momentum - NOT WORKING!

    Started using my brand new Magic Mouse and the momentum feature does not work. It does scroll like any other mouse on the market but no momentum. Also, I the tracking is slow even when set on the max setting. I've seen the posts with slow tracking, but is anyone having an issue with no momentum?

    Ok, this is what I did:
    Searched for, open it (It should open, by default, in Property List Editor).
    Open >Root. It will show a list of properties. BUT the 2 buttons at the top of the window will be greyed out. Just click on the property "UserPreferences" and the buttons at the top will become active.
    Click the "Add Sibling". In the new property that appears enter MouseMomentumScroll. Set it to Boolean and set to Yes and restart.
    And it works!
    YES, YES, I know I'm saying basically the same thing as DanielZ360, but I think "open the domain overview" might be confusing.

  • HT3904 Magic Mouse: laser not working

    Without warning, the laser appears to have stopped working in my Magic Mouse. It connects using Bluetooth, I have full fuctionality with the left and right click features as well as the surface of the mouse, however I am unable to move the cursor on the screen of my MacBook. Could anyone offer a solution, or do I have to buy a replacement? Thank you in anticipation.

    Try resetting the PRAM and SMC.  If that does not work, take it to an Apple store (if one is close) and have them test it.

    I've tried another mouse on my laptop and it work
    I also tried my mouse on another laptop and the same problem happens.
    it's behaving like a "normal" mouse.
    Is this a hardware problem? if yes, How do I fix it?
    Please advise,

    Reset the SMC and PRAM, it make take 2-3 attempts to fully clear them. If those do not work restart in Safe Mode to clear some caches.
    Shut down the computer.
    Unplug the computer's power cord and all peripherals.
    Press and hold the power button for 5 seconds.
    Release the power button.
    Attach the computers power cable.
    Press the power button to turn on the computer.
    Shut down the computer.
    Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command, Option, P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously in step 4.
    Turn on the computer.
    Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys. You must press this key combination before the gray screen appears.
    Hold the keys down until the computer restarts and you hear the startup sound for the second time.
    Release the keys.

  • Magic Mouse scroll not working.

    Has anyone found a solution to the Magic Mouse, not scrolling all of the time after the latest OSX update (10.9).  Tried forgetting the mouse and then reactivating it.  No luck.

    Please read this whole message before doing anything.
    This procedure is a test, not a solution. Don’t be disappointed when you find that nothing has changed after you complete it.
    Step 1
    The purpose of this step is to determine whether the problem is localized to your user account.
    Enable guest logins* and log in as Guest. Don't use the Safari-only “Guest User” login created by “Find My Mac.”
    While logged in as Guest, you won’t have access to any of your personal files or settings. Applications will behave as if you were running them for the first time. Don’t be alarmed by this; it’s normal. If you need any passwords or other personal data in order to complete the test, memorize, print, or write them down before you begin.
    Test while logged in as Guest. Same problem?
    After testing, log out of the guest account and, in your own account, disable it if you wish. Any files you created in the guest account will be deleted automatically when you log out of it.
    *Note: If you’ve activated “Find My Mac” or FileVault, then you can’t enable the Guest account. The “Guest User” login created by “Find My Mac” is not the same. Create a new account in which to test, and delete it, including its home folder, after testing.
    Step 2
    The purpose of this step is to determine whether the problem is caused by third-party system modifications that load automatically at startup or login, by a peripheral device, by a font conflict, or by corruption of the file system or of certain system caches.
    Disconnect all wired peripherals except those needed for the test, and remove all aftermarket expansion cards. Boot insafe mode and log in to the account with the problem. Note: If FileVault is enabled on some models, or if a firmware password is set, or if the boot volume is a software RAID, you can’t do this. Ask for further instructions.
    Safe mode is much slower to boot and run than normal, and some things won’t work at all, including sound output and Wi-Fi on certain models.  The next normal boot may also be somewhat slow.
    The login screen appears even if you usually log in automatically. You must know your login password in order to log in. If you’ve forgotten the password, you will need to reset it before you begin.
    Test while in safe mode. Same problem?
    After testing, reboot as usual (i.e., not in safe mode) and verify that you still have the problem. Post the results of steps 1 and 2.

  • Mouse click not working properly

    I just bought a macbook pro last week. Since using lion, I have noticed a problem clicking. Such as opening folders, minimizing windows, clicking the back space button etc. I click on a few folders and they open, and then I try to click on another one and it refuses to open no matter how many times I click on it unless I unselect it and try again. It is not consistent to specific folders/icons, it just happens at random. It is as if the OS is not registering clicks consistently, like it were a hardware problem. Also my right click malfunctions at times and will either not work or will behave like it is the left click and vice versa and takes awhile to regulate itself.
    Keep in mind I use both a wireless usb mouse and my trackpad and this is a problem I experience with both of them. I am using the latest version (10.7.3)

    Your warranty includes 90 days of phone support. Call AppleCare.

  • Webi: Mouse clicks not working

    I am using BO XI 3.1, Webi 12. .1.0.882 client. It is not responding to mouse clicks although I can use keyboards to open the universe e.g.(even for logon).
    Any ideas why is this happening and how to sort this?
    Thanks for all help.

    I have the same problem some times.
    This is going to sound crazy, but try this:
    1. Lay the mouse down like you would if you were going to use it.
    2. Use you index finger and "bang" on the mouse like you were mad at it. Hit it where the primary button (left side for me) is. Don't be too aggressive.
    3. It should work. It has always worked for me.
    4. It also helps to clean the track ball. I just run the track ball back and forth on my jeans.
    Good luck!
    P.S. I do not think this will void any warranty, just don't tell Apple!

  • Mouse clicks not working on published air app, works fine when debugging/testing

    So I have an issue where when debugging my Air application, it runs fine and mouse clicks work and everything.  When I publish the application and install it, it plays fine but clicking does nothing.
    We have an older version which is working when we publish it and we're trying to add things in one step at a time, but I figured I'd see if anyone else has had this issue.  A bit frustrating.

    We're using Dropbox to share files and it turns out that two people having project open at same time is a bad idea when doing final publish!  It creates conflict files and effects the final package or something of that nature.
    Glad we got that one figured out!

  • Keyboard and Magic Mouse Bluetooth not working

    I have an imac 21.5 late 2012, the problem is that every time you turn on the computer, keyboard and mouse do not respond, to make it work I have to turn it off and unplug all cables and let it without energy about 10 seconds, then i turned it on, and works great.
    Anyone have any similar problem? The imac has only one month of purchasing it and this is driving me crazy, it´s not suppose to act this way.
    I'll be very grateful if someone helps me

    Hey csaady,
    Thanks for the question. I understand you are having issues with your wireless peripherals when starting your computer. The following article may be of assistance to resolve this issue:
    Troubleshooting wireless mouse and keyboard issues
    If you continue to have issue, you can also reset the PRAM for your computer:

  • Mouse Clicker Not Working

    You know how the mouse clicker is supposed to pop back up after you click it? Well only one side of my clicker does. The other side will not pop back up. I believe my laptop is still under warranty. If I take it into the Apple store can they fix it?

    If you are under warranty, just take it back and Apple should fix it.
    If you are out of warranty, I'm sorry no answer for that.

  • Mouse clicks not working

    I am managing a mac pro (leopard) from a macbook (leopard) using remote desktop 3.2. Often when I control the mac pro, and enter a user session the mouse clicks on the managed computer behave incorrectly. A normal click corresponds to a click with a side button (the ones that show all the windows on screen). When this happens I have no other solution than to reboot the managed machine because I can't control it with the mouse. (can't select anything)
    Has this happened to anyone else ?

    Oops. Doing the same thing again. If I disconnect/reconnect the mouse, the buttons get switched to the right position. After that log out/in and the buttons are again the other way around. To do a click have to press the command key while pressing the mouse button.
