    Note that, while this indeed will spin down your hdd, the system will most
    likely spin it up again after a short period of time, unless you modify
    some settings. Especially the cron system may cause your hdd to spin up
    every once in a while.

    Yes, that's true. Watch out for activity in /var/log etc.
    I'm using ataidle on "diskless" workstations with attached
    hdd (now if that's not an oxymoron!). Most activities happen
    on the NFS mounted system partitions, and the hdd is only there
    for backup purposes and for file systems that are not always in
    use (like /home and so). Running ataidle on such workstations
    proves to be very effective.

    Actually this is for my home server which provides nfs/samba shares. The
    idle process is only for the data only drives.
