Orcale 9i -- NOT friendly with laptops -- the probe disk-hit every second!

P: n/a
I've been working with Oracle 9i for about 8 months on windows XP (the same
problem occurs with WIN2000). However, I noticed that the latest release has
some software that "hits the disk" about every 1-2 seconds! Anyway, this is
a real problem on my laptop, because it can NEVER go into a low-battery-mode
since the disk sub-system is always active. Does anyone know how to shut
this 1/2 second disk hit (evdently a disk-write)? I've spent about 16 hours
trying to trace which processes which are hitting-the-disk! I've almost
identified it, but when I shut down those processes, I still get the
disk-hits! This is BAD NEWS for laptop users that have to work off battery.
Anyway, I hope ORACLE will fix this problem soon!

Thanks in advance, for your advise!
