I have 24 Megs and almost the same situation. Even shutting down X and
killing cron doesn't help... Is there a good way to find out what is
accessing the disk? lsof is too much and doesn't say when files are
accessed, only which files... There are situations, where my hd spins
down, but it managed only to stay calm for at maximum 2 seconds. ??
I finally got X to not access disk so much, but I don't know if this is right
thing to do. Anyhow, removing cron and at packages did it for me. Now I am
p.s. If there is reason why I shouldn't remove these packages then please do
