No help here, just wondering if you used the trackpad scroll hack. I'm thinking bout trying it but don't want it to mess my PB all up. Hope somebody has a fix for you.

I'm having a similar problem. Whenever I disconnect my external monitor from my 12" powerbook, I lose control of the keyboard and trackpad. I am able to reproduce this and it has only happened since 10.3.8. Have you upgraded to 10.3.8 yet? Also, what type of powerbook do you have?
