Spinning up a drive over and over is the quickest way to destroy drives.

The biggest consumer of power in a PC setup is almost always the monitors. 
Set everything up for DPMS and you'll save a lot of power, far more than 
APM could ever save you.

If you *really* want to save power, you design servers from the beginning 
by picking power efficient components, underclocking, etc.
