G-sensor shock protection / Problems, to sensitive?

I have A sony Vaio, Just bought it 3 days ago. It works great on a table/desk but when I put it in my lap (it is a LAPTOP!) the g-sensor kicks in and locks the HDD. I have to Hard reset the laptop to get it working. Anyone had/or still have problem, suggestions on how to disable sensor or turn down the sensitivity?.
