DESCRIPTION

	Can you sleep in the same room when your computer is on? I
	can not! The harddisks make too much noise. Well, the power
	supply fan makes noise, too. But since I got a temperature
	controlled model, I can stand it much better. And there's
	another problem. The power led. Yes, it's so bright that I
	can read books!

	Speaking of SCSI harddisks, there is a mechanism to switch
	the motor off. It will just stop to spin as if you switched
	your computer off. But the drive is not dead. It's just
	q-u-i-e-t. It won't allow you to read or write data, though.
	But the controller electronic on the harddisk is still
	alive, and it might get a command to restart the drive at
	any time. Then it will behave just as if you switched your
	computer on. The motor will spin up again, and the drive
	will be ready to read or write data.

	This little program does exactly this. It monitors all read
	and write accesses to the drive. It also monitors all input
	events. If there is inactivity for a certain period of time,
	it will spin down the drive motor and dim the power led. If
	the next command arrives, it will spin up the motor and
	switch to led back to bright.
