Thats not what I had in mind, autosuspend doesn't work (presumably because hal keeps polling for media change) maybe I should fix hal to not keep polling for devices which don't have removable media?
Hi Hans,

I think the correct solution is that HAL stops polling the device as soon as it sees that it got autosuspended.

And how would we notice a medium change then? If there's an alternative
way to notice it or we know it cannot happen there's no reason to poll at all.

It looks like hal is currently polling device of which it knows the medium is not removable, like USB-pens.
