I have Debian bugreports saying that it's not only IBM laptop drives.
It happens on Seagate, Samsung, Maxtor as well.

Note that the final fix (putting the drives in standby mode) is not
discussed in this bug report - I experimented first with turning off
the write cache in the shutdown scripts which kind of worked but
feels not quite right - you might need just enough write activity
after that to completely flush the on-disk cache.
