Until the APG content is added to the PRD, you're more likely to get help on APG questions when you reproduce the content in question. I assume you're referring the the determination magic armor ability.

Determination:
A shield or armor with this property provides the ability to fight on against seemingly impossible odds. Once per day, when the owner reaches 0 or fewer hit points, the item automatically provides a breath of life spell.

I'm not sure what you mean by "position." Are you asking if the character falls over (as it would if it were rendered unconcsious)?

I think you have to assume the healing from the determination ability is triggered immediately upon having fewer than 1 hit point. Thus there is no status change to the character, so long as the character remains above 0 hit points after the healing. If after applying the healing from determination the character would *still* end up with negative hit points, the character drops and begins dying as normal. (And if after the healing the character has 0 hit points, it's staggered as normal.)
