Subject: Make better use of user drive spin-ups
From: Brent Geery (fasttimes_at_mochamail.com)
Date: 2003-04-27


I might have the wrong, but it seems like the current Rockbox firmware
does not take full advantage of the times when the user initiates a
drive spin-up, for whatever reason (saving settings, directory browse,
ect.)

If playing music, rockbox should take that opportunity to also top-off
the MPEG buffer. If not playing music (say, just saving settings or
something,) taking the time to buffer the directory tree might be a
good idea.

This should help save battery power, and also result in overall less
vulnerability to shocks.
