OK. Unloading is normal harmless and so on... However what's strange in my case -
unloading occures, wehen I USE my laptop remotely.
(As my laptop has much higher performance than my desktop workstation, while the
workstation has better keyboard, mouse and monitor, I very often work via
remote ssh or X session).

When working remotely, the laptops screen remains black, and when I e.g.
edit my VHDL sources, loading may be simply caused by the autosave option in the editor.

So the problem is why there is a difference between work on local keyboard
 (no unloading/loading due to entering the idle state) and remote work?
I'd like to prevent the disk from entering the idle state, when working remotely...
