Synopsis: ypbind defeats disk idle spindown

I will close this. There are numerous programs with the same behavior in the
base system of NetBSD, and even more are available from pkgsrc. It is 
expected that most of these will not be fixed.  (And well, frankly, you 
probably should not run ypbind(8) on a laptop to begin with, if power   
consumption matters.) One current option is to shutdown heavy daemons from 
powerd(8) when the status of the AC adapter changes.
