So, I tried noasync, which isnt an allowed option, thenm dirsync. Maybe 
I should try noatime as well. Can anyone please explain to me, what 
those flags mean, as I haven found any recent documentation for that.

Or has anyone the laptop mode and harddisk spindown working and can show 
me his /etc/fstab?

Thank you
