[Bug 59695] Re: High frequency of load/unload cycles on some hard disks may shorten lifetime

Just checked my ACER Extensa 5210, I bought it 3 months ago (laptop run mostly on AC power)
Load_Cycle_Count 68629
Power_On_Hours 707
Seems like I have 97 cycles/hour - it seems too much for me, anyway I use thunderbird to check my email every 3 minutes, but it is still strange to have 97 cycles per hour. Now I disabled APM using hdparm and cycles stopped increasing. Really strange that developers don't care about such an important bug...
