Keep the halyards attached at anchor?

It seems seamanly to keep one's halyards attached to one's sails while at anchor. The benefit of doing this would be that if you needed to get going and your engine won't oblige you can sail away more quickly. The problem I have is that halyards left attached clang, bang, and generally annoy.

What do you do? Is there an easy way to keep things attached and quick to deploy but avoid that annoying mast clanging.

I have a sauna on my boat, therefore I win.
