Hi all :-)

i have a server with several hd always on

i want idle hard disk after several minutes

the bios of mother b. is not good for do this, and i'd like use a software 
which atailde or others..

with ataidle i can idle my hd but how check if hd is really in idle mode?

Are there others ports 4 do this?

With linux i use hdparm, but there isn't on freebsd.
