Trackpad and trackpad button often unresponsive in Mavericks

This is an offshoot of discussion about a mouse right click not always working since upgrading to Mavericks.
I said using the trackpad and trackpad button on my MBP often doesn't effect the computer; I have to repeat those actions multiple times before anything happens.
Drew Reece offered some suggestions for my issues:
First, I came to Mavericks from Snow Leopard because I'd tried Lion and Mt. Lion but found my old laptop (early 2008 MBP v4.1) ran way, too slow.
Before going whole hog on Mavericks I read a lot, then installed it on an external drive (spinning, connected with FW800) and played with it for a few days.  I used Migration Assistant to make the move, which segregated software that was not compatible.  Mavericks was slow for a few days, but did gradually speed up.   However, that was when I first ran into the issue with the trackpad and button not registering with the computer's display.  I also ran into the problems with Mail not liking my 3 Gmail accounts but actually solved that using by booting in safe mode, thanks to another poster here.  Not sure why - I attributed it to Spotlight indexing the drive - everything about the computer was very slow and extremely funky while in safe mode; no way I would want to judge the OS based on performance during that boot.  It was awful.
I did update a lot of applications to Mavericks-ready versions while I was using 10.9 on that external drive.
When I felt comfortable, I wiped my NBP hard drive and did a clean install of Mavericks, followed by repeating the same software updates.  Then used Super Duper to just bring over User folders from that external drive.  Because SD restores the Spotlight state there was no "break-in" period so Mavericks ran reasonably fast right away.  I wasn't ready for iCloud deleting my Address Book data but, fortunately, I replaced everything from the external drive's Users/me/Library/Application Support/Address Book folder.
So, per Drew's suggestion, I ran EtreCheck:

I don't see anything that mentions software - good or bad.  And I don't see anything else that indicates a problem but maybe I just don't know how to read this report?
Sorry about the length of this but I wanted to addres all Drew's suggestions.  And I'm still seeing those intermittent trackpad/button issues.
- thanks

I'll try to break down each of these sections & point out any bad signs below.
Hopefully the color helps…

Red items are loaded at the system level
Blue items are loaded at the user level
The other stuff gets loaded into apps like Safari - they are internet plugins.
Cleanup:
All the usual caveats apply, backup before you modify the system, delete the items (or move them to another disk or folder if you are worried about deleting the wrong thing) but ensure the originals are gone or updated.
Use the Finders "Go menu > Go to Folder…" to open the hidden ~/Library (your users library).
Reboot for the system changes to take effect.
How to find updates:
The critical launchd jobs & kernel extensions use reverse domain notation e.g.
at.obdev.littlesnitchd.plist means look at http://obdev.at for 'LittleSnitch' updates
You want to try to update or remove all the system level items.
Startup Items: Stored in /Library/StartupItems/
Startup Items have been discontinued by Apple since Mac OS 10.4. They are responsible for making changes at a system level. Remove them all or spend time ensuring ALL related software is up to date. You need a very good reason to have anything installed in here.
Kernel Extensions: Stored in /Library/Extensions/
Kernel Extensions also load third party code, but they insert it into the 'core' of the OS. These can be safe, however you must ensure the related tools or apps are up to date, otherwise the system is basically built upon quicksand. Remove them all & see if the OS works better.
Your LittleSnitch is out of date for example, how about hardware monitor or Rogueamoeba's software?
Launchd jobs: several types
LaunchAgents          - Stored in /Library/LaunchAgents
LaunchDaemons       - Stored in /Library/LaunchDaemons
User LaunchAgents   - Stored in ~/Library/LaunchAgents
These are all background jobs, they are not necessarily bad, but if they are loading old code it could be doing untold damage to the performance & stability of the entire OS. Focus on the System level jobs (the ones inside /Library - the system level) also remove ['failed'] jobs.
EtreCheck gives a status on launchd jobs…
[loaded]                  - a running job
[not loaded]            - jobs that are set not to run, basically harmless, remove them unless you plan to use the associated software (if it is up to date)
[failed]                    - jobs in a crashed or unknown state, it could be forking processes or using all the system resources, remove these.
User login items:
Applications and helpers that are managed inside 'Systems Preferences > Users and groups > Login Items tab'.
These are loaded at the 'User level', consider removing all of them whilst you troubleshoot.  When you decide to re-add them ensure the software is up to date.
3rd Party Preference Panes: & Internet Plug-ins:
/Library/PreferencePanes/ and ~/Library/PreferencePanes/
/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/ and ~/Library/Internet Plug-Ins/
Once again these items all must be up to date, or remove them from your system. If the prefpanes manage additional software use the uninstaller or see the developers site for uninstall instructions.
Read the list of Internet plug-ins carefully, there are often duplicate Flash player versions that won't help stability, it's just wasted space too.
Don't forget to also update Safari's extensions in it's preferences (if you have any).
Re-run EtreCheck after cleaning up to see if items have returned (some apps will reload the background jobs when re-opened, so either update or remove the software).
Hope that isn't too daunting, the OS should be better if there are less old items running at the system level.

  • My trackpad and keyboard randomly become unresponsive on MBP Retina

    I just got my Macbook Pro with Retina a week ago. Its the newest model that just came out the week I got it. Its a 13 Inch. I noticed when I am using it, the trackpad and kayboard randomly become unresponsive for sometime. I have to close it and wait for it to start working again. Do you have any idea what the problem might be. Should I contact Apple?

    I went through this with my old Late 2008 Macbook Uni when I installed Kingston Value RAM.
    Take your new RAM out - install your old RAM back - do a PRAM reset and see if your keyboard and trackpad are working again.
    Once that's done - turn your Macbook off - install the new RAM - if keyboard and trackpad are unresponsive again - install different brand of RAM.
    I ended up intalling Crucial RAM in mine.
    Good luck.

  • My click wheel and select button are unresponsive

    hi
    I've had my iPod mini for just over a year now and I've had one or two problems in the past. However, I've been able to reset it by holding the select button and menu button. However, today my iPod's click wheel will not respond (and doesn't make it's usual noise) and my select button is unresponsive so I can't reset. Plus my almost full battery has just drained in less than 20 minutes. Are there any tips for restoring my iPod?
    Thanks

    Welcome to Apple Discussions!
    Try connecting it to the AC adapter after the battery is drained and resetting it. Also, is it turning on?
    Finally, does it connect to your computer? Try resetting it while it is connected to the computer.
    Read these tips on resetting...

  • Dropped mid 2013 macbook air keyboard and trackpad not responding

    My laptop slid off of my desk and onto the floor earlier this week. After checking to see if everything was okay- it was not!
    My trackpad and keyboard are now unresponsive.
    Macbook keeps searching for an external keyboard/ mouse.
    Some reviews say to remove the back case of the laptop and make sure everything is plugged in. Other reviews say to reset SMC and NVRAM. I am currently backing everything up , but which route is best for a dropped laptop?
    thanks in advance!

    Take it to an Apple Store or Authorized Apple Service Center to see if it is salvageable.  Sounds like it's very likely not salvageable.
    Hopefully you have a good backup, created before this catastrophe.

    My ipod display screen only shows a green light and the buttons are unresponsive. When i connected it to the computer , Itunes would not recognise it. Please can you help or seggest things that may help.

    Try:
    - iOS: Not responding or does not turn on
    - Also try DFU mode after try recovery mode

    - If not successful and you can't fully turn the iPod fully off, let the battery fully drain. After charging for an least an hour try the above again.
    - If still not successful that indicates a hardware problem and an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order.

  • I need help with scrolling and keyboard buttons on windows 7

    I've been able to install sound, bluetooth, and I'm able to do a right click.
    But for some reason, I still *can't scroll* and *the buttons on the keyboard (i.e. the eject button*), still won't work.
    There are two trackpad drivers on the snow leopard dvd. One is called multitouch and one just called *track pad*. Which one of those should I install?

    Hi nayefo,
    Try installing multitouch, and then see, while in windows, if you've successfully installed multitouch and multitouch mouse, you should have those drivers. Also check if you've installed trackpad and trackpad enabler.
    Cheers,
    Erik

  • Why does my Macbook pro keyboard and trackpad randomly become unresponsive forcing restart in OSX Mavericks?

    Randomly when using OSX Mavericks, since installing yesterday, my mid-2012 Macbook Pro keyboard and trackpad freeze and become unresponsive.
    The computer is still running whatever I was doing, the computer does not crash, i just cannot control it and the only way I have found as a fix is to restart.
    This never happened in Mountain Lion.
    Can anyone help?

    Very similarly.
    Mac Mini late 2012. i7 CPU, 16GB ram. 12GB unused.
    After installing Mavericks, it seems to grind my system to a halt. It is still running (I can move the cursor and activity monitor updates processes) but every application I try to launch results in a colorful waiting sign. It even can take a minute or more before an application shows "any" sign of starting.
    I tried to open a terminal session (so I could manually kill a process) but the terminal session did not even process. It timed out after 5 minutes.
    Acitivity monitor shows 90-95% idle and I have no idea what's causing it.
    I have already rebuild disk and reset permissions (all seemed fine) 3 times.
    I've rebooted over 8 times since last night. I cannot use my Mac anymore reliably.
    Please help.

  • Keyboard and trackpad unresponsive after computer is woken from sleep or battery runs out

    I am having problems after my battery runs out completely or when I open my macbook  a day later with the battery charged. If my battery runs out, after I plug it in and turn it on, the first thing that appears is the login page and there is a dark grey background instead of my normal blurred background, and the user picture is shifted to the right. After I enter my password a small white bar at the bottom loads and my normal login page loads, but this time my keyboard and trackpad are unresponsive. I have to wait for the display to go to sleep, close my macbook and then open it for my keyboard and trackpad to work. Sometimes I have to repeat this process more than once. The same thing happens when I wake up my computer with full battery after a nights sleep, and instead of being able to wake it up just by opening the lid I have to turn it on with the power button. Please help I know this isn't normal behavior. I have already reset the SMC and PRAM with no success and this problem was there before and after I upgraded from Mavericks to Yosemite.
    Thanks

    if any one ever has this problem, i figured it out. you have to reset the PRAM AND NVRAM. to do so...
    hold down the command+option+P+R keys before starting the computer and wait for 2 start up tones. done and done.

The same thing happens when I wake up my computer with full battery after a nights sleep, and instead of being able to wake it up just by opening the lid I have to turn it on with the power button. Please help I know this isn't normal behavior. I have already reset the SMC and PRAM with no success and this problem was there before and after I upgraded from Mavericks to Yosemite.
    Thanks

    I'm having same issue with my PB as Scott. Much appriciated if someone could help.

  • Keys and trackpad unresponsive

    keys and trackpad often unresponsive, especially on start up

    After leaving my Macbook in the sleep mode for a few hours, when I open the cover, the screen is on, the screen saver is working, desktop is normal, but the trackpad and keys do not function.  The only way to turn the Macbook off is to disconnect the power.  The power button does not power up the Macbook.  To power up, I need to do a control+command+return+power button all simultaneously. The unit will turn on, the screensaver will function, the desktop looks normal, however the trackpad and keys will not function. 
    On average, the Macbook will function properly about 1 out of 4 times that I power up using the 4-key power up method mentioned above.  Any ideas on how to fix would be appreciated.  Thanks!

  • Keyboard and trackpad freeze and randomly become unresponsive

    I've got a MacBook Pro (15-inch Early 2011) running Mac OS X 10.8.2.
    Since a few weeks ago at random intervals my keyboard and trackpad become permanently unresponsive. I don't recall any particular cause or change that would have caused this to start happening.
    What happens is that the trackpad and keyboard will stop functioning completely. The computer, display etc. would continue to function properly:
    The clock keeps ticking.
    If music were playing it would continue etc.
    Internet connectivity (via an ethernet cable or WiFi) continues to work as well (a download will continue, and even resume if I disconnect and reconnect the ethernet cable).
    Presssing the power button will bring up the shutdown dialog as usual (but I can't use it, obviously, so a forced shutdown needs to be performed instead by holding down the power button longer).
    .. but the keyboard and trackpad are rendered inoperable, as if they were no longer connected.
    I've made no progress in finding out what could possibly be the cause of this. A few observations:
    It has never happened while not using the keyboard (e.g. watch a DVD with TV series for a few hours, and afterwards the keyboard would always be fine).
    It always happens while actively typing (e.g. while in the middle of replying to an e-mail).
    It is not a temporary problem, the keyboard and trackpad will not become responsive again after some time (the computer isn't particulary occupied with calculating something big, no beachball and no busy mechanical noises).
    It does not happen progessively. It works fine and snappy one second, and I'm touching a dead keyboard a split second later.
    I tried connecting a USB keyboard but that doesn't seem to work either (I'm mentioning this since some of the linked threads below close with that as a solution).
    Possibly related (although I haven't found anything in these threads):
    Keyboard causes trackpad to not function properly
    Keyboard and trackpack freeze
    Keyboard and Trackpad Unresponsive
    MacBook Pro Keyboard & TrackPad freeze! Totally Unresponsive!
    MacBook Pro inbuilt Keyboard and Trackpad freeze when not connected to bluetooth devices?
    I've crawled through some log files in /var/log (via the shell and through Console.app) and found a couple things that may be relevant, although they seem unrelated. Etiher way, I was surprised by what I found. All sorts of errors with regards to Bluetooth and USB stuff. I'm not aware of using either. I haven't used bluetooth in years and though I sometimes charge an iPod by USB, I haven't had any problems with that, and this keyboard/trackpad freeze has also happened on sessions where I started the laptop and never even touch the USB ports in the time leading up to the freeze.
    Sample log from when it happened. It last happened at 21:04:xx:

  • Macbook Air Trackpad And Keyboard Unresponsive!! PLEASE HELP!

    Hello everyone, a while ago (about 2 months) my Macbook air started having troubles with its trackpack and keyboard. At random times they would become unresponsive and just stop working. They would work for like 1 second when the computer turns on but then it would stop. A couple weeks ago the problem stopped occuring the keyboard and trackpad were working fine and dandy. Of course until last night, I open the computer and the trackpad and keyboard won't work.. The keyboard lights are on and the power button works but nothing else does it is extremely frustrating! I did an SMC reset which worked for like 5 minutes until it stopped working again. I have done a NVRAM reset nothing, I have done everything that I have seen but I need a fix for this! The mac is running OS X 10.9.3 and I am pretty sure that is the latest. Please help me guys I am really getting frustrated with this undying problem ;/

    you don't need to disassemble your device.
    4 days is a lot.
    maybe rust has already been created.

  • Unresponsive keyboard and trackpad on pre-installed yosemite macbook pro mid-2014

    Hi,
    I have a brand new MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2014). Shipped with Yosemite pre-installed, the version I have is 10.10.1 . I don't have any software installed except Google Chrome, so it is clean/new OS.
    I noticed sometimes the keyboard and trackpad become completely unresponsive after waking up the laptop from sleep. Happened several times, the last time it happened I could not reset PRAM or SMC as keyboard was unresponsive even after restarting or shutting down so I had to Re-Install OS.
    Right now I have the laptop next to me, again the keyboard and trackpad are unresponsive after wakeup from sleep, and I did SMC reset but did not work. Trying to reset PRAM or go into Recovery mode .. etc, it is not responding to the keyboard, as it is unresponsive at that point as well.
    What should I do ? How can I tell if it is Hardware or Software problem ? I ran the apple test diagnostics test and there was no problem reported. And I am not able to install Mavericks because it is shipped with Yosemite pre-installed so it is not allowing me to downgrade.
    thoughts ?

    I just noticed that I have the following in the system log, both keyboard and trackpad are completely unresponsive even when shutting down/restart/sleep. I cannot even reset PRAM.
    This keeps showing up in the log, not sure what it means.

  • Keyboard and trackpad unresponsive when woken from sleep

    I have a Retina MBP running OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion.
    The last couple days when I wake my computer from sleep the trackpad and keyboard do not respond, but my external mouse works.
    I have to power down my computer, restart and then everything works.
    Anyone else have this issue?  Anyone know a solution?
    Thanks

    Hi MojoTed,
    I'm experiencing an issue that sounds exactly like what you describe. It's not a lag, so much as an occasional failure of the trackpad to actually activate the button after it's been depressed. It'll often also prematurely release while I'm dragging a window. It's super frustrating.
    I'm pretty sure the problem is mechanical. If I press with much more force than I'm used to on my old 2007 MacBook Pro or the Magic Trackpad, it always works consistently. So the workaround for me is just "press harder". Harder than I'm comfortable with, actually.
    I've taken it to the Genius Bar, but they refused to service it because they didn't see a problem with just pressing harder. So I think I'm just stuck with it, unless it fails completely at some point down the road.
    MojoTed, if you "press harder" does your problem go away? If so we may have the exact same issue.
