i wrote an initscript (/etc/init.d/hdparm):

#! /bin/sh

PATH=/sbin:/bin
NAME=hdparm

set -e

case "$1" in
  start)
        echo -n "Configuring /dev/hda "
            /sbin/hdparm -k 1 /dev/hda > /dev/null
            /sbin/hdparm -S 0 /dev/hda > /dev/null
        echo "Done."
        ;;
  stop)
        ;;
  reload)
        ;;
  restart|force-reload)
        echo -n "Configuring /dev/hda "
            /sbin/hdparm -k 1 /dev/hda > /dev/null
            /sbin/hdparm -S 0 /dev/hda > /dev/null
        echo "Done."
        ;;
  *)
        N=/etc/init.d/$NAME
        echo "Usage: $N {start|stop|restart|force-reload}" >&2
        exit 1
        ;;
esac

exit 0

based on /etc/init.d/skeleton

then i run:

update-rc.d -f hdparm start 31 S .
