The hard drive can definitely be spin down automatically using power
management scripts. I think you can configure it using acpi if I'm not

As for the graphics card...if you don't use a monitor why not remove it
completely? As for powering it down, that won't be possible because of
the way computers are designed. The only "computer" that does this is
the OLPC.
