    * Heads parked? * (XP all)

    The heads are parked during standby of a notebook, yes?

    Gosh, aren't we going back a long way to when it was actually necessary to park heads on hard disks?
    Wasn't that nearly before laptops were invented??

    Surely disk manufacturers have done this as an integral part of the power-down process for, well, ages!

    OK, so you don't believe me.

    See (for example) here
