Hard drive spinning down

On Ubuntu Feisty on a Dell Inspiron E1505/6400 I have a problem where
the hard drive spins down once a minute and slow the computer down.
Every minute I hear it spin up again and the machine lags for a few
seconds. How can I tell the drive to always keep spinning?

Thanks in advance.

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?
