Japanese term or phrase: de-energe
すみません。日本語というよりも、日本文のなかにあるローマ字です。ハードディスクのモータについてです。
「磁気ディスクの駆動がDE−ENERGEされた場合、磁気ヘッドと磁気ディスクの接続による摺動時間を短くする方法」

スペイン語で「Energe」はエネルギーのようです。
「DE」は英語ですと「Out」の意味で、ヨーロッパの言語の場合は冠詞みたいですし・・・
上記の文脈だとどうなるのでしょうか?ご存知の方がいたら、是非とも(!)教えてください。よろしくお願いします。

Explanation:
This appears to be Japlish term :-)

I think it simply means the condition where electrical current is not being provided to the motor that spins the disk.

The full sentence translation could be something like:
\"Methods to reduce friction time due to magnetic disk and head contact when the magnetic disk drive is disengaged\" (or \"when the disk drive has been de-energized\") (or more naturally \"when power is not being supplied to the drive motor\")
Which means, when the disk stops turning, the air bed between the disk head and disk platter no longer can prevent the two from coming into contact. While this contact may be inevitable, the author might be suggesting a way to keep this friction time as short as possible.

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Katsuhiko KAKUNO, Ph.D.: It looks noun form of "de-energize" (Vt.), or typo
7 mins
  -> past tense passive. (or something like that) . The "energe" part is probably the Japanese person's attempt to rationalize the Japanese word "energie" with the English. My favorite is "エネルギッシュ" ("energetic" in non-Japlish). :-)

agree  mstkwasa: "De" means roughly "from", "down", "about" and takes the ablative in Latin. All the Romance languages retain it with meanings such as "of" and other related concepts. In English, it has the same notion as "dis-" (to do the opposite).
