I'm seeing this too.  It started with the last two released FC2
kernels.  A shutdown would be fine of the system was being shutdown,
but not for a reset.

Also, only my ATA100 attached drive spins down, the SATA drive stays
running.  Could be an AT_PIIX driver specific issue.

WFM in newer kernels.

Seems fixed in current rawhide.
