    hi! i have a late 2008 macbook unibody. my trackpad is acting weird, sometimes when i'm reading something then i move my cursor(using one finger) it scrolls down or up. also i can't use expose. and when i move my cursor it moves slowly and the cursor is shaking.

    when i fold my macbook then open it again the everything works perfectly then after some time watthe trackpad acts up again.

    i think my trackpad's getting confused how many fingers I use.

    should i bring it to a repair center?

    Though I don't recommend this, please consider that this is a last resort if restarting doesn't resolve your problem: Resetting SMC or System Management Control.
