Arg. I see you don't get the point. I want that the disk spins down
directly after reading for filling the buffer. On the other hand I
want that the HDD keeps to be spinned up for 30 s after user activity
(key press).

How should that work with ONE value for "ext. power available" and ONE
value "battery mode, no ext. power"?

In my opinion the time before spinning down should depend on if
there's user activity or not.

Bye, Uwe.
