Description Arne Woerner 2009-07-15 14:15:02 EDT
Description of problem:
it seems like, "hdparm -C /dev/sdc" wakes up my disk since fedora core 11... but in fedora 10 it worked fine...

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
hdparm version v9.12

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. set timeout to 75secs (hdparm -S 15 /dev/sdc)
2. call "hdparm -C /dev/sdc" every 60 seconds
3. dont use the disk (unmounted)...
Actual results:
the disk never goes to sleep (status: standby)...

Expected results:
the disk should fall asleep,
in spite of the running gnome session...

Additional info:
in fedora 10 even /dev/sdb and /dev/sdd (they r a raid1 and contain seldom used parts of my home area) fell asleep the whole night (root fs is on /dev/sda), in spite of the running gnome session...

Arne, perhaps you can just dup this to 507963 please, since it seems to be the same issue.
