Paul, if you can find that information and Join us into the Project,
then we will be very happy about it. I hope you still have your
ThinkPad. ;-)

So, let me get this correct. The Super-I/O only sends the information or
should we be reading the information of what the accelerometer is
outputting?

The way I was thinking about it, is that you would only read from the
accelerometer, and within the value that is read, you will park or not
the heads depending on how sensitive the user specified the option on
the driver.
