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.

Oh, yeah, relevant apple discussions detailing this problem:

uhhh, so what do you do to them?

I don't do anything to them! I swear! T.T I use these machines daily, pretty much 80% of my waking time - they come to classes with me, club meetings, homework and coding gets done on them...

The only thing I could think of is that it might be because I carry them around so much? But.... really... it's a laptop - I trust Apple did design it with the intention that it'll get moved from point A to point B in potentially slightly bumpy situations. Or, in the case of the MacBook pro, perhaps overheating of delicate components? This system gets HOT sometimes...

I use this macbook pro all the time though I don't transport it as much as you do, but it had already been used for awhile before I got it... I just keep hearing you tell you about mysterious tragedies with your computer... is anything in that computer still authentic/original? Bad luck man.

Most it is still original, actually - typically, it appears to be the same part breaking every time - with the iBook G4, it was the motherboard ("logic board" - specifically the GPU, I believe). With the MacBook Pro, it seems to be the "top case" / keyboard-trackpad. Everything else stays perfectly fine.
