My hard disk spins down after a period of inactivity even though I disabled power management in the BIOS
Explanation: You have turned off power management, but the hard disk still spins down after a period of inactivity.
Diagnosis: Sometimes the power management isn't really turned off; it's possible that more than one BIOS setting needs to be changed and they weren't all changed. There could be a BIOS bug as well.
