    Are there any drives that will persist the spindown settings (e.g. "hdparm -S1 /dev/sg1") over a hard power cycle of the drive?  I have a piece of embedded equipment (a DVR) that works wonderfully with spindown enabled, but I have to hack it, and if the thing looses power it looses the setting. -K 1 helps, but not for power cycling.
