    This combination does not work properly with respect to resuming from S3
    standby mode. When you try to resume, the drive makes 4 clicking sounds
    about a second or two apart and then WinXP dies a horrible death (with
    all sorts of different errors, but most typically "Unknown Hard Error"
    and/or a bluescreen with stop code d0000144. ASUS tech support is
    uninterested in the problem. Hitachi tech support blames it on ASUS not
    giving the drive enough time to spin up after resume.

    If this is an important consideration to you, look elsewhere for your
    SATA hard drive.

    This doesn't sound like a good reason not to buy the drive. There are many,
    many pieces of software that interfere with S3. The obvious solution is not
    to use S3. It is ALWAYS better to reboot than to resume.
