    Subjecthdparm -Y /dev/hd? lock my harddisk
    Jocking with hdparm I tried `hdparm -Y /dev/hda`, I seen "sending sleep
    command" or something similar. After some seconds with the HD led ON I was
    again on the shell with the HD led OFF, I typed `ls` and the HD locked
    with the HD led ON.

    I can reproduce this lock with any kind of setting in the BIOS (UDMA
    disabled or enabled).

    Kernel is 2.1.105 (I haven' tried other kernel).

    PIIX4: IDE controller on PCI bus 00 dev 09
    PIIX4: not 100% native mode: will probe irqs later
    ide0: BM-DMA at 0xe000-0xe007, BIOS settings: hda:pio, hdb:pio
    ide1: BM-DMA at 0xe008-0xe00f, BIOS settings: hdc:pio, hdd:pio
    hdc: HITACHI CDR-8130, ATAPI CDROM drive

    Partition check:
    hda: hda1 hda2 hda3 hda4

    This problem doesn' t harm me at all though, since I never got one problem
    with an IDE disk/cdrom so far and I never need to put my HD to sleep ;-).
    If for the most of people hdparm -Y works, probably is my HD or my IDE
    chipset that make mess with the sleep command...
