Re: Getting my hard disk to spin down and cron
- I installed "Cool n' Quiet" on my LS-I and noticed in the logs that
the disk would spin down after 30 minutes of inactivity and then
would spin right back up within seconds. I looked into those
AutoFan* scripts and noticed that it would log spin ups and spin
downs (wouldn't logging something to a log file cause a write to the
disk??) so I took it out. Didn't have more time to investigate
