To clarify the question:
when you pick up treasure or disarm a trap using one of your MPs, can you still use cards or respective boni that require no movement?

We have been playing that you have to actually move to be considered moving and using MP to interact with objects and the like doesn't count.

Though with how up in the air the rules of this game are it really is up to you on how you want to deal with it.

We play you have to physically move to be moving.
The rule states
• No Movement - The Hero is stationary.
It does not say no Movement means not using any MP. It states you physically do not move.

We play if you move 1 space and use 1mp to pick up a treasure then you still use Cautious movement.

An easy way to visualize this, is imagine that everything that you put in your 4 action slots is happening in a quick moment. I'll use the D&D timing of 6 seconds. Everything everyone else is doing, is simultaneous and happening during that same "6 seconds". (This is why you only get 1 action per hero cycle, and that movement is throughout the cycle, and not per card.)

So, you have to spend a movement point to pick up a treasure. You are moving. You are not stationary. While you might not be changing your position on the map, you are moving your body up and down.

If you only spend that one movement, you are moving cautiously. Imagine you are keeping your eye on the crawler in front of you as you are picking it up, trying to make subtle movements.

If you spend 2 movement point to move normally, (1 for pickup, 1 for moving 1 space forward) imagine you are picking up that treasure a little faster and moving closer to that crawler.

Doing stuff like that, should help out a bit easier on understanding why things may work the way they do.

Edit: Grammar

That does make sense. We will have to consider this with our house rule until something official comes out.

This is an easy way to look at it, and the correct way to play this game. It has already been ruled that use of MP, no matter how it is used still counts for that type of movement.

Also, if you play a Move the rules state you are considered to have made an Aggressive movement, but nowhere does it may you must use those MP.

Anytime a Hero uses MP, he is considering moving. He doesn't actually have to move from his square to be considered moving.
