http://ubuntuforums.org – when I was using the beta 9.10, there was a script in /etc/acpi/start.d/ called somthing like: 90-hdparm* it was executed on startup, it does "hdparm -B 254 /dev/sda" when on AC power or -B 128 when on battery. after installing the final 9.10, that script doesn't exist anymore but I think the "hdparm" commands are still executed on startup (coz I found no clickings and very high temp on AC, that's what happens after hdparm -B 254) my question is: If there is no script, how can I customize/remove that feature, I want to be able to control it, or maybe I'm wrong and the system doesn't execute hdparm commands on startup (I don't think I'm wrong)? pls guys, I don't wanna have chat here, if u got the answer/something useful say it. sry, if I sound arrogant :p (Hardware)
