Yesterday I left my MacBook to sleep for a long 8 hours and usually I wake up my MacBook by clicking the trackpad but today surprisingly the trackpad did not have that 'click' noise I could move the cursor around but I could not click on anything but after a restart the trackpad functioned correctly. This problem is occurring the first time for me this never occurred to me I just want to know why this is happening.
This has happened to me before to many times. I haven't found one particular thing that works every-time, but after I try different things it eventually starts back up.
Possible solution #1
- Unplug all external device from the computer
- Hold the power button for 20 seconds then release
- Click the power button in attempt to boot
This sometimes works for me, if it doesn't work, try Possible Solution #2
Possible solution #2
Try an SMC Reset
If this doesn't work then I attempt Possible Solution #2 again. I basically just loop the 2 solutions. Also sometimes leaving it for 5-10 minutes after a couple of cycles.
I apologize that this isn't that exact. But this is my method of fixing this issue, and it has always eventually worked for me.
