Begging your pardon I didn't not understand. On ubuntu I use this fix:
if on_ac_power; then
# on AC so don't do any head parking
hdparm -B 254 /dev/sda # you might need 255 or a different value
# either on battery or power status could not be determined
# so quickly park the head to protect the disk
hdparm -B 128 /dev/sda
That pm-utils you mentioned solves the problem better than this fix?
What about FC9?
