Thanks for the post. I'm already aware of the issue, but others might not be.
Here's a page discussing the issue and potential fixes/workarounds: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DanielHahler/Bug59695
It mentions adding the fix to resume scripts so that hdparm gets called after sleep, but that might not be necessary. It's also possible to keep the aggressive head parking enabled on battery for safety, while turning it down on AC for longevity. You can use "laptop-mode" or add hdparm calls to the power scripts.
