    New Macbook Pro, 160GB 5400RPM Fujitsu drive.

    Several times a minute I get a “clunk” sound from my drive. It’s pretty quiet-I only hear it in a near silent room. I’ve got it set to never spin down the drive, so it’s not that.

    I have activity monitor going, displaying drive usage, and it seems to “clunk” a few seconds after the usage drops to zero. I’m guessing the drive automatically parks itself or something when it’s not reading or writing. I’ve read some random threads on the internet with other people with clunking Fujitsu drives. Just wanted to see if everyone else’s does this too. :)

    Yeah mate, that's normal. If it starts clicking continuously, then come back and tell us all about it. :)
