when my windows 8 laptop is at idle, my hard drive with my libraries on it will spin down and show no activity, by my ssd with os on it will show 0% activity, but will still be doing constant small (32-102 kb/s) writes. Why is this happening? is this bad?

even if you are not doing anything with windows its constantly reading and writing to the drive/ssd. This is normal.
