A Random question about win7 services.

I am wondering does win7 have some built in service that when the pc is idle for X amount of time it makes the hdd go nuts? When this happens the hdd access light on the front of my pc stays solidly lit, I don't like the wear and tear on my hdd is there anyway to disable this "Feature"?
