I have a different opinion.  Since it's known that many laptop drives do
shutdown very often after a tiny idle period, and we have an OS that
does like to continually access the drive, one or the other behaviours
needs adjusting.

Having a drive going clunk every few seconds is not going to be good for
longevity.
