Only if specifcally configured to do so I believe. Mine have always
come to auto spin-up on power-up and needed reconfiguring (IBM
Ultrastar etc).

Depends on disk manufacturer. Most are default to spin on boot.
In raid arrays this is often disabled. I believe IDE disks don't support delayed start.


So it's with scsi you can and with IDE you can't.
