Neko (lofulah)

MacBook Pro keyboard and mouse/trackpad died again

I've only had it back for about a week!

Left it on overnight. When I work up, tried to wake it by tapping on the keyboard, it didn't wake up. Hit the power button, and I saw the display blink into view. Grabbed the USB keyboard, plugged that in, and that worked, as well as the mouse.

But builtin keyboard and mouse are dead. No responses whatsoever. Tried reseting the pram and smc or smu or whatever it was called. Nothing helped. Rebooted into the restore DVD to check and see if it was a software problem. That didn't work either.

Grr. Grrrrrrr. Calling Apple tomorrow.
