comment Why doesn't trackpad work in Preview or TextEdit?
Two finger clicking works. This corresponds to right clicking with a mouse. The single tap doesn't work. This corresponds to left clicking on a mouse. Using a mouse gives the same behavior. Left clicking doesn't do anything. Can't highlight, can't click to close or do anything else. Physicall clicking the trackpad gives the same behavior. Right click works and left clicking doesn't do anything.

comment How can I configure my keyboard to be backlit at the login screen?
I tried this and it didn't work. I turned FileVault off and booted in safe mode. Then rebooted again in normal mode and the problem went away. I could change volume, screen brightness, and keyboard was backlit. Then I turned FileVault back on and rebooted and the problem was back. Thanks for your help.

Nothing happens. No sounds, no change. Nothing.

comment How can I configure my keyboard to be backlit at the login screen?
I am unable to change the brightness of the keyboard at the login screen. I can't change the brightness of the screen or the keyboard when I'm at the login screen. I have both at full brightness when I restart. Keyboard isn't backlit but screen is at full brightness.

I've restarted SystemUIServer. Nothing happened. It just started again right away with a new process id. I've killed Finder too with the same result. I've booted in safe mode. Same problem but now the keyboard is backlit at the login screen. I've created a new user and the new user experiences the same problem. When no applications are running there is no menubar.

@bneely: Finder shows up and I have killed it and the problem persists.
