This is usual behavior, in fact there was another post some days ago
about this. Especially if you run X-Windows and acpid and other
daemons that have open sockets to communicate with processes all that
tantamounts to disk activity that is cashed (I guess) and periodically
flushed on disk.

do a 'lsof' to see the ton of sockets and temporary files lying around.
