Hello.

Earlier, the desk got slammed hard and 2012 13.3" MBP, with its updated mac
OS v10.14.6, rebooted back to its SSD unlock screen and had to log in
manually. Nothing was lost so far and even Firefox v78.0.1 still remember
its logged web site login. MBP was connected with its magnetic power AC and
still has its original battery with almost 100% juice. Weird/Odd! :/

Thank you for reading and hopefully answering. :)

If the internal storage is a hard drive as opposed to an SSD, then
there's nothing weird or odd about it. Physical shocks should *always*
be avoided with hard drives, because the read/write head floats only a
few nanometers above the spinning platter, where even what we might
think is a /slight/ shock can send the head crashing into the platter
("Oh noz, my HD crashed!"). And the hard drive isn't the only sensitive
component in a computer, either. With a hard enough jolt, there are
other things that can go wrong.

In general, you should follow this simple rule: be careful with your
expensive electronics if you care about them.

Not weird or odd at all. Mac Laptops have an accelerometer specifically
for this.

Sudden Motion Sensor
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sudden_Motion_Sensor

I don't know that it's supposed to reboot. It's meant to park the heads on a hard drive so that there is less chance of the drive being damaged in a fall. Of course, it's pretty much useless with an SSD equiped Mac.

Thanks and interesting. Yeah, it did reboot. It was just a hard slam/hit on the desk
(not a drop). :(

It was covered in either a product announcement for the aluminum MBP
unibody or a keynote many years ago (more than a decade)

You can look for "Sudden Motion Sensor" if you're curious.

Earlier, the desk got slammed hard and 2012 13.3" MBP, with its updated

its logged web site login. MBP was connected with its magnetic power AC
and still has its original battery with almost 100% juice. Weird/Odd! :/

Not weird or odd at all. Mac Laptops have an accelerometer specifically
for this.

Wow. Are there more details about this?

No, not a sad face emoticon at all. The correct reaction is "Whew!"

You said a 2012 MBP, so that machine was designed for spinning hard
drives, though SSDs were an option.

As the wikipedia page states, it only exists in machines that support
hard drives (though the page says laptops, and I think that is not
accurate, but I may be misremembering.

There are no other moving parts, so there's nothing else the sensor can be used for. It is solely for hard drives (inlcuding Apple's Fusion drives). It's not possible to stop the screen getting cracked or hinges breaking, for example.
