We show that the X‐ray enhancement light curves of transient AXP∕SGRs can be reproduced by the active fallback disk model. We solve the diffusion equation for the relaxation of a disk that has been pushed back by a soft gamma‐ray burst. Our preliminary results indicate that a critical temperature around 1500 K leads to a thermal‐viscous instability in the fallback disks of all AXP∕SGRs. The effect of the instability on the light curves are different for transient and persistent sources due to different pre‐burst disk conditions in these systems.
