What is sensor.dll?

Part of ThinkVantage Active Protection System by Lenovo.

What is it?

ThinkVantage Active Protection System - Shock Sensor Module. The APS is a protection system for the ThinkPad's internal harddrive. A sensor inside the ThinkPad recognizes when the notebook is accelerated. A software applet then is triggered to park the harddisk. This way the risk of data loss in case of when the notebook is dropped is significantly reduced since the read/write head of the harddrive is parked and hence can't crash onto the platter when the notebook drops onto the floor.
