I saw on the FAQ that there are problems with Maxtor firmware, but from what I can tell this drive and firmware are fairly new. Anyone know why the value for power_on_minutes loops at ~1000 or so?  And is there a why to know how many times it's looped to get a rough estimate of the drive's total poweron hours?
