It is nothing more than an attempt to save power-for laptops.
It also will make vista more silent-as when not in use, the Hard drive spins down.
Since your hard rive has spun down, it is also producing less heat-the biggest emery of computers-especially laptops.
I hope you got a nice fast hard drive-7200 rpm with a 16 meg buffer (yes, it DOES make a difference).
PLEASE NOTE: a fast hard drive only helps when you are using hard drive, for example: booting, loading levels on games-not playing them- video and
