Using Stalk to confirm you are paying attention while car is on Auto Pilot

I actually tested this out thoroughly on a recent road trip. If I used the stalk 15 times in a row when the warning would pop up, it would dismiss the message. After that, the warning would pop up every three seconds until I put just a little tension on the steering wheel. This was on an autopilot 1 vehicle.

AP stalk or turn signal stalk. How/direction is it being pushed? ie. if AP stalk do you go up 1 MPH and then down 1 MPH?
 
I pulled the AP stalk towards me once.
Exactly. I stumbled on it and i foud it useful. I did not try it 15x. Every now and then the car does not recognize the "tension" and i panic and take of AP and then reenable it. The stalk has been automatic.

The easier way is to tune the volume, up or down.
This is useful to know.
