After PC is idle a while, all HDD's spin up?

If my PC is idle for, I dunno, 15 minutes... instead of putting drives to sleep as I'd expect, it does the opposite... all 4 of my internal drives spin up (from a state of being completely stopped)....

App for changing what appears under "new" context menu?

I've found some tweakui-type apps for 7, including ContextEdit. But it doesn't have exactly what I want.
