Windows 7 Ultimate - Signature Edition

I like the idea of the software because of how it works by writing a file in a set amount of time to keep it awake - my question is is that the same way that windows "should" keep it awake, like does windows just create a temp file or something and then just keep replacing it to keep dries from spinning down?

or is windows doing what linux does, that is to send the drive a "stay awake" message of sorts using the SMART system built into the drive - like a DMA command not just writing a file
