..that means the HDD is always spinned up. And that was my third mode.

I think, the three modes I described are very suitable and I hope you
agree with me that they should behave as I wrote. The ability to
additionaly set the timeout value that is used there is not necessary,
as I think, but I've nothing against it being there.

BTW: Your Forename is Linus, or not? Why have you set your mail program
to write "Nielsen Linus" and not "Linus Nielsen" as sender? Or are you
from (StarTrek Universe's) Bajor? ;-) What is this "(ext)"?

Bye, Uwe.
