Install IBM Active Protection System Linux Driver (HDAPS)


$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install tp-smapi-dkms hdapsd
$ echo 'tp_smapi' | sudo tee -a /etc/modules
$ echo 'hdapsd' | sudo tee -a /etc/modules
$ sudo modprobe tp_smapi
$ sudo /etc/init.d/hdapsd restart

Verify if it works

$ sudo hdapsd

it should display "parking" on console if you move your laptop

Modify config: /etc/default/hdapsd

  • sensitivity: default is 15. higher value means less sensitive.
  • disk: the disk that hdapsd should monitor
