[CentOS] Drive activity every 30sec

I have a Centos installed on a Hitachi 2.5" drive that shuts off really 
quickly, it seems.

So every 30 sec, the drive makes the sound of an access activity.  I 
have looked trying to find what might be being updated.  Swap drive 
usage is 0 bytes.  No activity in /var/log.  What might it be and can I 
do anything to lessen the drive access (improve battery life)?
