    My sensor is way too sensitive - it parks the heads at the slightest movement. I found a way to calibrate it - it did not fix this over-sensitivity, but I thought I'd post this here in case anyone wanted to mess with this tool.

    It is free, open-source software. There is an 8 step process.

    They also have a seismograph app so your lappy can give out earth quake readings. :)

    When your sensor parks the heads, do you hear a noise or is it silent? I'm trying to diagnose a weird noise that I get sometimes from my macbook pro.

    It makes a noise. It's like a sharp clicking.
