Jeff Wolford passed the action item on to me to investigate Compaq's
requirements for the drive to support power-saving timers. Today our
BIOS does setup our ATA hard drives to spin down after X minutes of
inactivity on our desktop PC's. However, with our SCSI drives, since
none of our drive suppliers are supporting the SCSI-3 power-saving
timers we rely on the OS or in some cases we've written our own device
drivers that send the start/stop unit command. Compaq is therefore
supporting the removal of page 0x1A from RBC.
