compression by spring, potential motion
Question I have, could a compressor that works by say a spring that gets pushed by a electric actuator into a compression chamber,, the actual power it takes to compress the spring only takes say 1 second, the spring then provides compressed air for lets say 5 seconds of powering lets say a motor generator, would this not be close to potential motion? the air could be hydraulic if better.

I don't know what "potential motion" is. Did you mean Perpetual Motion? If so, no it would not, and perpetual motion threads are not allowed on PF at all, even to debunk. They typically lead to dozens of crackpots flooding it with nonsense and arguments are the only result.
