'noatime' is the default for 3.x kernels, so no need to do anything
about that in fstab.

:) If you don't tend to do that very often, you may be interested
to know (I think it's still so) that most 2.5" HDDs are designed
for a 50:50 duty cycle. It may be that they spin down partly to
force some heat saving, as well as save the environment.

I have a Soekris Net4801 around here somewhere, which has a 2.5"
HDD mounted directly above its CPU in a very small case. IIRC;
it cost about 5 times the price of an ordinary drive - to get
'always on' in the spec.

Just about to gdisk a 3TiB Seagate !Green Barracuda.
I mitigate its carbon footprint by never flying and rarely bathing!
