I'm taking my MacbookAir in to Genius to see about a hinge fix out of warranty. On loading a Buffalo NAS last night I came across a setting that said SUDDEN MOTION SENSOR - ENABLED cant remember where now. I take it that this motion sensor protects the harddrive from impact etc. If it says enabled, does that mean it is ready to protect, or that it has had a drop recorded?
I just don't want the Genius to tell me that the out of warranty repair is invalid for a knock being recorded, it certainly hasn't been dropped but has slid off the sofa onto the carpet once!!

Enabled in this case means "activated".

By activated, do you mean it's already sensed a drop or ready to sense a drop?

ready to sense a drop.

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup
