Default Air Compressor on driver side of 1993 Bonneville SSE

I noticed that after turning off the Bonnie, I hear a motor noise under hood. I looked, and it is some type of air compressor that kicks on.. It ran for about 5 minutes. Seems too long.. Possibly draining the battery.. I just bought this badass car, and would like to know if anyone knows what the hell this air compressors purpose is

Thanks,

yes if you have a leak in the rear air shocks your compressor can drain the battery
