Summary: HardDrive Active Protection System

HardDrive Active Protection System.

The APS is a protection system for the ThinkPads internal harddrive. A
sensor inside the ThinkPad recognizes when the notebook is
accelerated. A software applet then is triggered to park the harddisk.
This way the risk of data loss in case of when the notebook is dropped
is significantly reduced since the read/write head of the harddrive is
parked and hence can't crash onto the platter when the notebook drops
onto the floor.

Note: requires kernel 2.6.28+ or patched previous versions,
