I learned the hard way that once a hard drive has been spinning for a
long time, it may not start if you stop it.
I had a machine with 180 days uptime. I had to move house. So I
powered down the machine. When I went to switch it on again, the drive
spindle wouldn't start. Upon opening it, I found the spindle was welded
to the bearing. I guess that's the difference between a consumer hard
drive and a server hard drive.
