Have any updates prevented pwr mngmnt from spinning down HD?

LMDE.2 Betsy 32 bit Mate, Compaq Presario C700

Sorry I cant pinpoint precisely when this occurred but in the last few days i have noticed that power management is no longer working. As it had been working flawlessly since I installed LMDE immediately it was released, I kinda assume some update has prevented the hard drive from spinning down: In fact, I can now hear the drive spinning constantly, even when the display has shut down, and certainly after the 2 hour supposedly active period set in power management. Rebooting the computer doesn't help.

Does anyone know if any updates have had anything to do with power management and if so, how to uninstall that or those updates please?
