[Q] I'm looking for some way to quickly spin down the disk. If I'm in a
situation where I know the disk won't be needed, it would be nice to be able to
shut it up on demand. Is there any way to do that now? Is it possible to write
a program that does this via ARM (or whatever)?

[A] Anything (almost) is possible. But for now just go into Compaq's Power
Management program while in windows,and set the hard drive spin down time to 1
minute. 1 minute later brrrrrrrrrrr Click It's fast, it's free ,it works, and
it's already done

[A] Get HDSDOWN3 (from ftp.compaq.com) to set the HD spindown time.
