Hello everyone,
After old hdd in my mid2009 MacBook Pro broke down I replaced it with WD Scorpio Blue. Unfortunately I bought a version with shock guard. In effect well known conflict with built in sudden motion sensor freezes my Mac for 1-2 seconds in every 5 minutes. I tried to deactivate sudden motion sensor but I can't. When I try to check whether it is active by typing "sudo pmset -g" in terminal, this is what I get back:


Any ideas how to fix it?

I think you need to start with "sudo pmset -a sms 0" return/password/etc then "sudo pmset -g"

Just checking some old posts...

What is your default language setting? System Preferences->Language & Text->Language. Have you switched it lately? Eliminated any languages?

Tried an SMC reset?

I tried almost everything. SMC reset too. My default language is Polish, I haven't changed it since I installed Snow Leo on my new hdd. I also tried to switch my language settings - still nothing...
