Forcing HDD spindown

Dear all,

one problem I have on my system is the frequency with which the kernel
winds up the HDD. It is hot almost constantly, and never seems to power
down. Is there anything I can do (aside from deactivating updatedb and the
like) in order to force the system to a minimal use of the HDD?

Thanks in advance,
