then dosnt spin back down. the HD shouldnt spin up at
all when just chargeing .. however! if i turn it on.. plug it

This only happens with the FM version, right?

The same happens with my unit. When Rockbox is in firmware
and the charger is connected the disk always spins in charge

I reported this behaviour before on and a Rockbox
developer may have closed or deleted the report and referred
to some 2003 CVS patch of Rockbox which would correct this
issue. (I don't remember exactly.)

You will have to update the boot loader.
