Description:

Part of the Active Protection System found on some IBM/Lenovo Thinkpad models - including the T, W, X and Z series. This provides airbag-like protection for your hard drive as the system has "an integrated motion sensor that continuously monitors the movement of the notebook, and, if a sudden change in motion is detected, it temporarily stops the hard drive to protect it from a potential crash". The user can also temporarily suspend APS via the Start Menu or (optional) System Tray icon and view the real-time status
