This is a simple theft alarm for laptops with HDAPS, controlled by a Unity indicator. HDAPS (Hard Drive Active Protection System) is, I think, only present on some Apple and Lenovo laptops. I use the tp_smapi module on my Lenovo laptop, but YMMV.
####Install Mve the icon into /usr/share/icons/hicolor/scalable/devices and then regenerate the GTK icon cache (or else the icon won't show up). See INSTALL for more info.
- $ python alarm.py #or set the script to run on startup.
- Click the Arm option on the indicator to drop the computer into screensaver mode and arm the alarm.
- Unlock the computer with your password to disarm the alarm.
- If, before the alarm is disarmed, the laptop is moved, it will (loudly) alarm. If it's moved only a little bit, it will beep as a warning. The volume of the warning beep varies in direct proportion with the magnitude of the move.

This software is based almost entirely off of Janitha Karunaratne's jtheftalarm script and [Ubuntu's sample Python Unity indicator](http://developer.ubuntu.com/resources/technologies/application-indicators/ Unity).
