I wasnt sure where to put this so i put it in the next best thing.

I have a laptop, and the mouse button that you click, not tap on the touch pad, has becoming sticky due to repeated clicking. now it doesnt have that resistance point, where you know that the button is yet to be pushed. like in a car, when you push on the gas pedal, you have to apply a certain force to push it down even a little bit. any less force and it wont budge.

my mouse button has lost that resistance. should i wait a few days before clicking it again, i havent been eating or drinking around it, but was playing a game on it that required clicking alot. could that have been the problem.

The super-ultra small switch underneath the mouse button only last so many cycles
I'm not sure about the layout of your laptop, but I would say that you need to replace the assembly

well to help you replace the assembly you need to tell us what laptop it is.

actually, i dont want to change the assembly becuase it still works, but has lost its resistance. like when i lightly tough it, it depresses and is sensitive, i dont mind this.

since it still works ill keep it but what is that chance that it will stop working within the next few weeks? are they that fragile?

As fragile as anything else with a laptop
It might last another year or two
Who knows
