    Recently, whenever I move my MBP even slightly, I hear this small metallic click on it's left (my right) side. Even if i just adjust it while its on my lap or if i type i can sometimes hear it. IIRC the hard drive is on the other side but I can't remember and haven't opened it up yet. While its on a desk i never hear it so the movement is definitely causing something in there to hit something else...any ideas what it is?

    the sudden motion sensor is parking the heads when it senses movement to prevent data loss is what it most likely is

    a good thing
