WinXP power mgmt woes
I've set up my power config for "always on", "never" shut off hard drives, etc. but still I hear my hard drives spin down periodically. I have not timed it but its is less than an hour of idle time.
Check your BIOS settings.

Do more work!
Write a little program to access the drive and have task scheduler run it every 0.95 hours?
Why on Earth would you want this behavior?
Why would I want my hard drives cycling on and off several times an hour? If they would spin down and stay that way, fine, but they don't. So I'd just rather they kept spinning all the time.
