comment How to treat an internal hard drive like an external one (to only mount on request)
Just tried it on an Ubuntu 12.04.2 machine with a loopback setup, and it worked like expected. I also had to add users to the fstab option list so that the user can mount the drive without root privilege. And then it works flawlessly by just clicking on the drive in nautilus.

I know of hdparm, however if its mounted it will randomly spin up if I don't double check for background services (updatedb/locate, zeitgeist and so on)
