Could you elaborate on this? For the drive in question (my laptop), I had
used Windows 7 for the longest before installing Arch on it recently and
using Windows sparsely now but for company apps that don't jive with
wine/*nix. In the Windows power settings I have it set to never idle the HD.
In linux now, I haven 't set anything for it either, I am using
laptop-mode-tools (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Laptop_Mode_Tools).
If you'll check the Hard Disk section of that link, I have implemented that
command to 254. If you can recommend an improved means of handling the HD
spin/power management by all means I'd like to do that, as I have not
configured it at all really beyond that.
