Question If you have ICH5R and use enchanced/raid-mode

Actually this is not a poll, rather a small problem on either the driver, mb, ich5r or even my two different brand s-ata hdd's plugged into it.

When i reboot or turn off computer (4pda2+, win xp) (problem does not occur when going to stand by STR mode OR if in legacy ICH5R sata mode) it happens that just when it's supposed to reboot or power down, both hdd's (or one if just single) spin down two or three times, also making a minor click sound. After the hdd's have shut down the reboot/power down happens. If i rebooted, the hdd's take their time spinning on (hdd power up it seems) when the Intel s-ata raid boot screen appears.

Anyway, as i see it i have two options to avoid the unnecessary wearing of the hdd's: Either always use stand by or switch to legacy s-ata mode (where you lose either primary or secondary IDE port)

What i would like to know is anyone had similar experience when using Enchanced mode on 4PDA2+ for example? (maxtor s-ata seems to have slower spinup/down than seagate, making the booting couple second slower when the Intel Raid screen appears)

I'm using the drivers supplied with the motherboard, and have latest bios of course.
