Tandon TM-848E Normal Behavior?

It's been several weeks since I've done anything with my TM-848E drives, but I think that the behavior that Ali described is normal. As I recall, I have older belt-driven (but still DC-powered) TM-848 drives in some of my Radio Shack machines, and the newer ones with brushless hub motors that I use in my imaging setup. Both of them stop the spindle motor when not in use, unlike older 8" drives with AC-powered motors that run continuously.
