Install Smart Monitoring Tool

Sudo apt-get install smartmontools

Check the number of load cycle count

sudo smartctl -a /dev/sda | grep Load_Cycle_Count

Stay as root in the terminal

sudo -s

Create a file /etc/acpi/99-hdd-spin-fix.sh

hdparm -B 254 /dev/sda

Copy to these destinations

cp /etc/acpi/99-hdd-spin-fix.sh /etc/acpi/start.d
cp /etc/acpi/99-hdd-spin-fix.sh /etc/acpi/suspend.d
cp /etc/acpi/99-hdd-spin-fix.sh /etc/acpi/resume.d
