Hi ,

I need your help / opinion on how to minimize access to the
harddisk in my computer.

I have used a power down of 3 minutes, but when I am using a big
file for reading, like an ebook, the Hard disk keeps on reactivating,
in other words the cashing of harddisk data is not enough.

Please, advise on how to adjust settings, or may be to use Ramdisk.
My operating system is winxp pro 2002.

Thanks in advance.

Only used it a couple of times, because I don't need to worry about disk activity, but the ramdisk software by S*upers*peed works pretty well:
