For this very reason, I have ext2. But gkrellm shows me small write
peaks every other second. I figured out, that /var/log/XFree86.0.log
gets filled with
(II) PM Event received: Power Status Change

I asked some days ago in a separate thread, how do solve this issue,
but noone replied.  Googling around shows, that other people have the
same problem, yet no solution is provided.

Hence, (at least for me) independent of the filesystem I use,
my disk will never spin down.

I'd really love to have a solution for this.
