    I notice when I pick up my MBP, it clicks. Sounds like it is coming from the right side. I just got the MBP a week ago. Anything wrong?

    HDD sensor parking the heads of the HDD. Whenever there's a sudden change position, it parks the head to prevent damage to the HDD.

    Clicks when on? It's the hard drive protecting the platters from damage. (Sudden motion sensor).

    This is the sudden motion detector. It parks the hard drive to protect your precious data.

    Three exact same replies at sane time.

    Apparently clicks and beeps happening too often. Report at Apple Insider says Apple finally working on fix.

    Good luck.

    Uh.. fix what? there's nothing wrong with your laptop. Didn't you read what everyone said? When you move your laptop too quickly, the sudden motion sensor reads that and parks the harddrive so there is no damage to it. Download SeisMac and watch the needles jump for yourself if you don't believe me
