Did a few search on this topic but no luck.
I have checked "Put the hard disk(s) to sleep when possible." under Energy Saver but I have never realize the HD actually spin down at all? Is there a way (software, unix command or anything) to force the hard drive to spin down say in 2 minutes of inactivity?
I am sure this can make the battery last longer.
Oh, I am using Panther.
