    Try cleaning your optical trackpad with a soft cloth

    Yep. I just blow on my trackpad, then click it once, and it seems to subside for a while.

    You must be a former Blackberry user. No need to do battery pulls on an Android phone. A power off then back on (reboot) is all that's necessary.

    As others have pointed out, it's because of the optical trackpad. While cleaning helps a bit, your location is the biggest factor. I've noticed that when I'm under florescent lights at work, it is CONSTANTLY switching screens. It also moves the cursor whenver I'm typing and makes use while at work almost, well, unusable. However, when I'm in my car, at home, or outside, I never have an issue with it "jumping screens."

    My advice: if you find yourself in one of these situations where it jumps alot, put a piece of tape over the trackpad. Now, if we had the ability to disable it totally I think I would jump for joy.

    ...is why I like hanging here. Good advice and folks honestly trying to help.
    Had the same issue myself awhile back. Read some posts, got some advice and resolved the issue.

    A damped Q-tip with alcohol, a few breaths to dry, a couple pops pushing in on the ball then some rolls to check out the function worked for me. Haven't had an issue since!
