It's work in progress which I look forward to use when passed on through the

Hello guys (and gals),
does anybody know if there is a (safe) way to force a SATA disk to enter
the lowest power consumption mode (causing it to shut down) while having
the possibility to reset it when needed? I'm looking for something similar
to the options provided by the hdparm utility in the case of IDE disks.
I plan to perform regular backups on two big SATA disks in an automated
way, turning them on just to perform an incremental backup and then
turning them off again. This may be a crazy idea, do you think it would
be safer to just force the disks to spin down/up or even keeping them in
full power mode?
