This happens from time to time ie 1 in every 5 spin ups
with the hard drive timeout setting on 1 second.

Hard drive powers up to buffer next part of song but
powers down before it has read all of the data and
subsequently it then cycles spinning up, not reading all of
the data and then spinning down. I think that this is
occuring when the user has changed the hard drive spin
down options to either 1 or 2 seconds and the hard drive
is spinning down before reading all of the data.

The software should not allow the hard drive to spin
down until it has read all of the data it wants to and over
ride the spin down after 1 or 2 seconds settings that the
user has selected.
This task depends upon

Yes, there is a bug left somewhere in the disk sleep handling.

Until the bug is found, keep your drive timeout at 5 seconds or

Since we now have a min spindown of 3 sec, this is not a problem.
