When I'm on battery power on the other hand, the hard disk only vents and makes noise every 10 minutes or so for a while.
Does really nobody have advise on this issue? The strage thing is, when I run on batteries even with power management set to "home / office desk" the venting and noise is every ten minutes or so. As soon as I plug in my AC adapter the notebook is making noise constantly without stopping. Am I right if I think that is not how it is supposed to be?
