I will try 3 things once I see HSA is activated

1) Step on the gas and release the clutch at the same time
2) Step on the gas without releasing the clutch
3) Start to release the clutch without stepping on the gas.

Ok tried this last night...The "test location" It is a parking spot I can pull in while facing uphill and pull straight out up the incline as well. The incline is step enough that HSA turns on every time.

I tried this 3 times and did feel the car hold me in place but it seemed to release as soon as I wanted it too/expected it to in order to move forward. (could this be after the 2 seconds window??? maybe, but it was not odd)

Nothing happened, HSA stayed engaged until the 2 seconds was up and then car rolled back (because I didn't release the clutch)

I released the clutch slow, car stalled without moving

Interesting note.....I tried my experiment before I went into the store. When I went to leave I

Put the clutch in.
Started the car
Put the car in first
Put my foot on the gas and at the same time released the hand brake and drove away without the HSA activating.

I really didn't think anything of it as that has been my procedure for years to pull out of any spot...Which may explain why I have rarely seen the HSA activate when parked on any incline.

I still have yet to see it activate on the road in a driving condition.....but 95% of my stop lights are on flat ground...only about 5% are on any incline.
