    Hey guys. I have had this new MBP for about a month now and I was wondering if any of you people that have the 500gb 7200RPM hitachi drive notice a clicking any time you move your mbp? When I am using it and barly move it or slightly bump it the drive clicks! Scares me every time. My old 500gb 7200rpm never makes noise in my old MBP. Should I make an appointment at the apple store?

    Just did some tests. Turns out my HDD doesnt stop spinning when the sensor kicks in. I put my ear to it every time it clicks and it just keeps on spinning like normal. also turned off SMS and everything was normal. Enabled it again and it still never kicked in just clicked. Seems like my drive is faulty?

    The clicking is the sound of the heads parking. It doesn't stop the disc from spinning. There's nothing wrong with your drive. Read the links I posted.
