    Fully agreed, and that's the approach the IBM Windows driver seems to
    take - you just hear the disk park its head when the sensor kicks in
    (you can hear it) - the disk does not spin down when this happens.

    Could this be some reserved ATA command that only works with certain#
    drives?

    Bye,
