Thanks Andreas,

I used the script mentioned under "/etc/apm/battery" and set the  
idle-timer to 60 seconds - it does the trick:
now the disk in my qube spins up approximately 5 times per hour - I assume  
atrun triggers that.

The drive has a rating of 300.000 Start/Stop Cycles, which - at the  
current rate - computes to 60.000 hours, which exceeds the designed  
component service life of 20.000 hours / 3 years (whichever comes first)  
by far.
