this doesn`t only happen on notebooks but also with enterprise disks for
24/7hrs useage.

even worse - there are disks on the market which don`t let you tune the
timeouts with standard methods. you need to get a proprietary DOS *sigh* tool
to tune the unload interval - and WD support may give that to you - or not....

see these threads:

Yeah, I recall the thread. I don't really think we can do something about it
tho. The only possible solution is to periodically issue commands to the drive
to keep its head from unloading. Yuk..
