Disabling Hp ProtectSmart Harddrive :(

okay so i play alot of music from my laptop, and everytime i close the lid my music stops and starts and plays for a bit and then stops and starts again, it happens all the time,

i read in another forum that its because of the HP PROTECTSMART harddrive that helps ur drive from breaking from too much movement. now i feel its way to sensitive, anyone know how to disable it? ive tried looking it up in the control panel but im completely lost.

What is the setting for what is to happen when you close the lid, in Control Panel>Power Options?. Set it to nothing.

Establish a clean boot so you know no other program is interfering, work through these other Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7

Check for the latest sound driver via optional Updates and then HP Support Downloads webpage for your model.
