atacontrol spindown 0 does not work

I don't like to hear the spin down from my hard drive, it does it every
10 seconds approximately. I used ataidle -P 0 /dev/ad0 to disable it and
When I saw there was a atacontrol command for this, I tried it, so I
removed ataidle and I tried :
markand at Melon ~ $ sudo atacontrol spindown ad0 0
markand at Melon ~ $ sudo atacontrol spindown ad0
ad0: idle spin down disabled
But I can still hear the noise every 10 seconds, I think atacontrol does
not totally close the APM feature of the device.
Do you have any clue?
