Does anyone know what this is HDAPM?  Thanks

This is probably the only relevant thing.

 

I'm not sure why you'd want or need this, as ATA drives are long dead.

hdapm

A Mac OS X utility for setting the power management (APM) level on ATA hard drives.

It can be used to eliminate "chirping" or "clicking when idle" noises in some HDDs.

 

Compatibility

  • OS X 10.5 or higher.
  • ATA/SATA hard disk with APM support.
  • Does not work with external USB or Firewire drives.

 

 

Documentation

Further information can be found in the usage guide.

 

 

Downloads

New! (Aug 25, 2012) version 1.2.

  • Improved support for systems with multiple drives.
  • Detects all APM compatible drives automatically (No need to edit .plist file for Optibays, Mac Pros, etc).
  • New uninstall script.

 

 

Installer Package hdapm-1.2.dmg
Source code hdapm-1.2-source.tar.gz

Thanks for this information. I have a MM 2011 model and it started to make clicking noises 2 days ago. When I downloaded this the clicking now i hear maybe once or twice not like before loud through my computer speakers.
