Answer to "My Keyboard and trackpad not working"New battery fixed my problem for the most part. The only times it has lost keyboard & trackpad communication has been a couple of times in the past month when I let the battery die down to nothing, then re-starting the computer with power cable in fixed it both times. No problem if I keep it up over 5% power in the battery and I think the fact the old batter was swollen in the middle and was losing power had something to do with causing this problem more and more often as the batter got older. It would be good if Apple confessed to the cause of this problem and provided sound advice.
Answer to "My Keyboard and trackpad not working"Figured mine out a little, my macbook pro was experiencing the same thing. Only conditions under which the keyboard and trackpad would cease responding was when the battery was powering the computer. Whenever I ran it without battery or with battery in but power cable also connected there was no fault ever appeared. I suspect the battery is getting very tired and affecting the basic instructions in the computer. Anyhow I'm due for a new battery as it tells me it needs replacing (2 1/2 years old)so I should know within a week or so that the problem is solved.
