It's possible to make the drive autostart; it's some sort of settable
option in the drive's firmware. The only program I've seen to manipulate
it, however, is rzdisk on the MIPS-based DECstations. Using rzdisk under
Ultrix, you can configure the drive to spin up on power on. I believe
there's also a version of RZDISK available for Alpha VMS, but I've not
encountered it there.
