      Hola, Iván. Decías:

      Well. It is souposed to work in kernel-2.4, also :-) I am trying it with
      hdparm -B1 in an Inspiron 8600 and works OK: HD respons quit fast and
      stops early when not in use.

      But it has a problem (noted in the file laptop-mode.txt): laptop's HD
      stands quite few spindowns (around 50 000). So, I think it is a good
      script to use just when you need it: to enlarge the battery charge or
      to silent the laptop, but not in an everyday basis... It's a pity...
      but it is a good thing, anyway.


      Ángel.
