comment Why did my rMBP13 (late 2013) wake up every minute until battery depleted with reason: ? (Question Mark)?
@fyrephile: I just found this as the top hit for a google search. Do you happened to have any new info to report? My late 2013 MBP is doing the same thing.

revised Mac Sudden Motion Sensor: Obtaining activation state
Emphasized the core part of the question to prevent future confusion.

Yes, the original impetus for the question was severe response times measured in double-digit seconds from an otherwise "okay" (SMART, stress tests, other machines, etc.) disk. Those issues have since been resolved but I wanted a way to determine (conclusively, not just by disabling it) whether SMS triggering an extended head part was at fault. I'll upvote, but can't accept since there is no way (yet) to obtain the state I was asking about. Thanks!

My point is that the operating must already be doing that polling itself, and triggering a head park above some SMS input threshold. As you say, there doesn't appear to be any way to obtain whether the system is currently "above" or "below" that threshold in the same way that pmset -g ps will report whether the system is currently on AC power or not.

That definitely provides a mechanism for seeing the raw state of the accelerometer (you'll see I even mentioned Amit Singh's page myself), but it doesn't sound like it's able to tell you if the operating system has decided the park the hard drive's head due to the severity of the input. My question is specifically about gaining visibility into the hard drive's state in direct response to SMS input.

I kind of wish Amit Singh was on here. I think he knows a thing or two about this topic...
