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.
