    SubjectRe: [PATCH] Laptop-mode v7 for linux 2.6.1

    For the users of laptop-mode patch I find this entry in the manual page
    of syslog.conf very interesting:

    "You may prefix each entry with the minus ‘‘-’’ sign to omit syncing the
    file after every logging. Note that you might lose information if the
    system crashes right behind a write attempt. Nevertheless this might
    give you back some performance, especially if you run programs that use
    logging in a very verbose manner."

    Found that after finding out that it was syslogd who spun up my disk:)
