Hi,

One annoying feature of Ubuntu is it's power management can be too aggressive resulting in the hard drive spinning up & down with an audible clicking noise. This is how you turn it off:


Open command line.


Issue (and enter root password):


echo 'hdparm -B 255 /dev/sda' | sudo tee -a /etc/hdparm.conf


Reboot.


That's it. I hope this helps some of you out there.
