    I bought a MacBook Pro a couple of days ago and after some worry found out my "click" was the motion sensor in the notebook. I was wondering if there is a way to make it "less sensitive" or turn off? It's driving me crazy, I don't know if mine is more sensitive than others or what. I did a Google search on it and it said in the "finder" menu you could select utilities to view the sensor, however I can't seem to find "utilities". Any help is much appreciated. Thanks!

    The motion sensor is set to trigger when it "feels" a motion comparable to free fall. You can turn it off with these directions if its a problem:

    When you pick up the computer, instead of suddenly moving it, slowly pick it up.

    Thanks! It's crazy... if I'm balancing it on my lap and I put my wrist quickly to the right of the trackpad it does it! CRAZYY. At first I thought something was wrong with it!!

    Leave it on and adjust your habits. You're obviously being too rough with the machine.

    It shouldnt be super noticable. It's a small inconvenience to risk your hard drive being damaged by movement.

    It takes some time to adapt and ignore it, but it will save your data if your MBP falls...
