well, in my experience i found that almost every harddisk get silent when in sleep mode. just to save energy. if it sounds crazy there should be problem with you APCI (auto power control interface). or there could be a corrupted, software call or software signal for that.

for a solution i would suggest you;
1. if this laptop is under warrenty check in with your vendor, don't take any further risks.

2. try an upgrade of IDE driver for Win ME, or
   try your operating system upgrade/reinstall
3. if all above fails to solve your problem you may need a switch back to windows 98. if it is still the same your hardware is doubted.

I see you are new here and may not know the proper protocol we follow
when posting Answers and Comments.
We ONLY post as an answer when we are 200% sure that is the answer and
there is no other possible answer.
Your proposed answer certainly lacks this, you listed something that may
work but more likely will not help. In the future please refrain from
posting "Proposed Answer" instead post as comments and if your comment
is found to be the correct solution then the questioner can accept that
as the answer. By "locking" the question you may cause other experts to
overlook the question and a correct solution will be delayed or missed
completely.
Most of us have found that posting as comments is the best way for
everyone concerned.

These points are for steve for his comments in the above question, it was not a question that needed an answer from others.

rizwantahir26!  Its great you tried and that was a possibility, however, could be a lot of things and when not certain comments are better. Its a great site and we all learn from each other working as a team providing comments. Here is my standed quote!

Welcome to E-E! Its common courtesy to provide comments unless you know your answer is the only answer and is 300% correct and is what the questioner is looking for and will fix their problem. Please don?t take this personally, (others could let you know before I and not so diplomatically) I made the same mistake when I first arrived and someone was nice enough to point it out to me (It hurt my feelings, but I soon realized its teamwork that?s used here).
This accomplishes a couple of things:
First: it doesn't lock the question allowing more exposure to other experts allowing a faster fix (many problems require an interactive dialogue to troubleshoot them properly),
Secondly: it gives the questioner the option to make an award based on the best comment that helped the most in fixing their problem and it is also is common courtesy to other experts.
Please change your present answer to a comment. Again welcome and look forward to working with you in the future, a lot of teamwork is used at this forum, as you will see! :>) Dave
