           Summary: Unnecessarily HDD spin up on login
           Product: kde
           Version: 4.6
          Platform: Gentoo Packages
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: NOR
         Component: general
        AssignedTo: unassigned-bugs at kde.org
        ReportedBy: phorsyon at gmx.net

Version:           4.6 (using KDE 4.6.0) 
OS:                Linux

Since the upgrade from kde 4.5 to 4.6 and the switch from hal to udisks/upower,
kde spins up sleeping HDDs after login.
The disks gets mounted via the systemd automounter on access, but after login
it's still unmounted, which means kde didn't access the data on that disks but
only spun the drive up.
I also tried to start udisks-daemon on boot, before putting the drive into
sleep, but the problem remains.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot your computer.
2. Put a HDD in sleep mode (via console login or init script). Make sure kde
doesn't need any data from that drive.
3. login via kdm.
4. KDE splashscreen shows up and the the HDD spins up.

Actual Results:  
Sleeping drives no longer sleep

Expected Results:  
Drives in sleeping stay in sleeping mode until data is actually requested.

I disabled following KDE Services: "Power Management, Removeable Device
