Windows 7: Storage HDD spools up before/after standby

Storage HDD spools up before/after standby

I recently added a SSD to my ThinkPad, moving the HDD into the Ultrabay. There are some nice speed increases, but the HDD always spools up when waking up and going on standby. Only data on the HDD is music, ISOs and backup files.

Is there anything I can do about this?
