noise (like defrag) from hard-drive in ubuntu...


ive just installed ubuntu and notice there are noises coming from my hard-drive like its defragmenting or optimizing but the light isnt coming on... i never noticed this activity in windows7? - when it defrags in windows 7 i can hear it and the light flashes but on this the lights not flashing but i can hear wot sounds like fast writing, really fast clicking

can anyone tell me wot this is?

edit: looking on web it seems to be a problem with power management settings in ubuntu being incorrect... i refuse to believe its the manufacturers as its been fine in windows for past 2 years
