Thank you to everyone for your helpful tips and suggestions. You make 
FreeBSD great. :)

I tried the camcontrol suggestion first since it didn't require 
installing anything, but it didn't seem to work. Tried sysutils/ataidle 
next since it allows keeping spindown but with a reasonable timeout, and 
it seems to have worked perfectly: ataidle -P 127 /dev/ada0.
