ATAidle sets the idle timer on ATA hard drives, so they spin down when the period of inactivity has expired. To use it, you must be running FreeBSD with ATAng, so basically FreeBSD 5.1 or newer - alternatively, you can also run it on Linux - its been tested with kernel 2.6.1, but should work with any recent kernel. ATAidle will not work on architectures other than i386, since it doesnt yet handle endian issues. Also, it is limited to detecting the first 8 ATA channels. Installation: To install ATAidle, run make to build it, followed by make install to install the binary into /usr/local/sbin, and install the man page into /usr/local/man/man8. If you later want to remove ataidle, simply run make uninstall. Alternatively, the binary can be copied and run from a more convenient location. Linux Users: You may have to edit Makefile.Linux to set the compiler name - its currently gcc-3.3 because a compiler which understands C99 must be used, and gcc 2.95 doesnt support it. Some distributions such as gentoo use version 3.3 by default and thus dont have a gcc-3.3 executable. In this case, change gcc-3.3 to gcc and run make. Usage: atacontrol [-h] [-l] [-s] [-i] [-I idle_mins] [-S standby_mins] [-A acoustic_level] [-P apm_level] channel device where -h shows usage information -l lists installed devices -I sets the idle level spindown timer -i sets the drive into idle mode immediately -S ets the standby level spindown timer -s sets the drive into standby mode immediately -A sets the acoustic level, value between 128 and 254 -P sets the power management level, value between 1 and 254 channel the channel of ata controller device the device of the ata controller (0 or 1) You can find the correct channel and device by listing the installed devices with ataidle -l channel device Supplying channel and device numbers without any parameters will display information about the specified device. Whats New in This Release: - Support for ATA sleep mode was added. - A FreeBSD startup script was added..
