HDD Activity light and idle in desktop ?

  Giggle n' Bits 10:50 23 Dec 2003

while my PC is in the desktop (WinXP Home) running idle doing nothing with no S.Savers or shutdowns set, is it normal for the HDD to spin and show active while its doing nothing in the desktop.

I have ran a Diagnostic tool for the HDD and just wonder if this could be related to my other problem relating to boot delay problem.

Do you have office? click here

Windows will "self manage" itself when the computer is idle.

I have the Microsoft Works Suite 2004 which has a selection of Office plugins and that link at the MS K/b site I will follow to edit the settings.

Thank you for the call and Merry Christmas Powerless !
