Presumably this depends on the version of Windows? My NT4 laptop is always (I think literally) accessing its HD regardless of what (if anything) I'm doing. Not good when it's running on battery.

However, I understood that NT4 was a dumb choice for a laptop and that other versions were better (like they might actually allow the HD to spool-down). In my case, it's corporate policy so no chance to experiment.
