I find the autofsck to be most notable on my laptop, perhaps because I
reboot it more frequently, and because it usually chooses to autofsck at
some inopportune time.  I don't know if laptop harddrives need fsck more
than desktop's, but I wouldn't mind seeing the frequency be reduced for

Alternatively, maybe the autofsck could be made to take a few more
factors into account, such as total run time since last fsck, total
absolute time since last fsck, drive age, etc.
