MS Security Essentials, "certain patterns of suspicious activity"

In Microsoft Security Essentials, there is an option to "check for certain patterns of suspicious activity". What are these patterns of suspicious activity? How much does this slow down my system? How likely am I to get a false positive?

Maybe I should have called it "Enable Behavior Monitoring" instead. It's under settings, the third checkbox under real time protection options.

By default (I believe) all my Real-time protection options are checked. I can not recall MSE flagging anything for any of the real time protection options.
