Default Disable Acoustic Management

While looking through Sisandra, it said my main HDD (a Maxtor 120gb) had this thing called acoustic management enabled which makes the drive quieter but sacrifices performance, i dont want this on since the noise doenst really annoy me. How do i disable this?
Thanks
Wayne

with the IBM - Hitachi Feature Tool 1.97 you can change the acoustic management among other things. i think it should work with other hdds as well.
