You have yet to name the process. So far everybody replying has made the
*assumption* that you are referencing "System Idle".... Are you?

As far as HD activity when you aren't doing anything, check into drive
indexing.

From
http://www.tweakhound.com/vista/tweakguide/page_4.htm

Turn Off Indexing or Configure which drives you want indexed

1 - Many people have noticed a lot of "disk activity" or "disk thrashing" in
Vista. Disabling this will stop SOME of this activity but NOT all. Other
Vista services like Prefetch and ReadyBoost account for some of this

2 - Disabling Indexing does not mean you can't use Windows Search but it
does mean searches will take more time.
