    Constant HDD access using Safeboot with new Dell Precision M4400

      Say, has anyone noticed when Safeboot is installed there is frequent (every 0.5 sec) hard drive access on Dell Precision M4400 laptops even after initial encryption is complete?   I have 3 with Safeboot and one without.   When Safeboot is installed the HDD is being accessed frequently.

      However, when I remove the optical drive, the HDD access is minimal (every 30 sec). 

       

      Could there be a Dell firmware incompatibility with Safeboot or otherwise?

       

      Any and all comments much appreciated..
