I just saw a video posted on YouTube of the P30 (not the S like the title says) and trigger control. When the firearm is in SA mode, I was very surprised to see so much trigger slack. It looked like a LEM trigger pull with the added safety lever.

Can someone explain the advantage of this trigger slack in SA (with the safety lever)?

No advantage. It isn't a 1911...you can't expect there to be no take up. GT may come along soon. He can offer solid insight to the differences of the P30 and P30S as he has a few of each.

All DA/SA pistols have slack, it's the nature of the design. You get used to the uptake and re-uptake after you run the gun for awhile. The Glock and M&P also has slack, but not as much as the 'P' Series, but primarily to the DA/SA design. The only platform that doesn't have slack is of course, your SAO designs, namely the 1911. Looking for a perfect trigger, get a 1911 or Browning and be prepared to spend the $$.

Also, having not see the video, is it possible that the pistol in the video was a P30LS? That model is in fact an LEM with a safety and would explain what you were seeing.

There is no such thing as a HK SAO (not including the P7 cause it is its own animal). Custom shops can make a SAO but it's still not going to be a 1911 trigger.

It is certainly is not a 1911 SAO trigger, however, for me it's as close as it gets. I have the HKP7M8, HKP2000sk w/LEM trigger and sold my P30 w/DA, SA. Replaced it with this one because I wanted the different trigger options it offered. Guess, I am used to the trigger because the long trigger(if you think it is) is not preceived by me.
