khdapsmon is a monitor primarily for the Hard Drive Active Protection System (HDAPS) found in IBM ThinkPads. It's primary interface is a system tray icon that indicates whether the queue is frozen or not on the selected hard disk device.

This is similar to the tray icon found on the pre-installed OS on ThinkPads. khdapsmon project should work with other systems similar to the ThinkPad's, such as those found in Apple PowerBooks but this has not been tested and is probably dependent upon kernel code that is not yet available.

A status dialog also prints out useful information like accelerometer status and keyboard/mouse activity status. It also allows for the selection of the monitored device if you have more than one hard disk that supports queue freezing.

WARNING: THIS PROGRAM DOES NOT PARK DISK HEADS BASED ON ACCELEROMETER DATA. That is the job of the hdapsd daemon. The author is not responsible for lost data or other damage resulting from a misconfigured HDAPS setup. In fact, no one is responsible for any damage resulting from anything except you. But since you are a seasoned user of open-source software, you already knew that.

Please mail me if you have any problems (see the source archive README for my address). PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE SUPPORT QUERIES IN THE COMMENTS SECTION OF KDE-APPS.ORG. I also do not want basic queries about computers, KDE, or Linux not related to khdapsmon. I'm not running a consulting business and I don't want to. Feedback or suggestions for the program are most welcome, however, both at and in my inbox.

Please read the documentation for this and more information, including system requirements.

Note: GUI is changed but screenshot upload appears to be broken.
