Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC
Is there any way I can either extend the time it takes for my Windows XP Pro SP2 to shutdown slowly, or at least spin down the drives before so abruptly cutting the power?
Hard Drives have one running speed once they are fired up, unlike a car engine which can idle down when not driving. They don't spin down until the power is shut off, and that is after all data is safe and RAM is not shadowing data from the HD.
Hard drives making clicking sounds after shutting down is an imminent sign of impending failure of the heads. Replacement is the best thing.
