Like he said, you need to have a specific sensor in order to do this. All the Macs in the Macbook family have a sensor that has the ability to do this. The Mac Pro, Mac Mini, and iMac donít need sensors like that for daily use.
By the way, this hack isnít recommended. The purpose of the sensor is to park the hard drive when the sensor feels a sudden jolt or fall. If you mess around with the settings, it could defeat the purpose of the feature.
