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.
