    I may have found a solution for all the people out there who upgraded their hd's to a 7200rpm and have the clicking noise.

    Apple released a firmware update for the 7200rpm drives that shipped with the uMBP. You can get the file from here.

    I don't know if this will fix only the hd's shipped with the MBP or any 7200rpm drive but its worth a try.

    PS: Also i ask that anyone who tries this please report back on your results.

    The clicking is supposed to happen... It means that the hard drive is protecting itself from damage.

    Your find/idea... I say you give it a try and let us know. It parks itself for a reason... to protect the data on the disk.
