    NUC Win 7 / 8 Drive Idle / Standby Problem


      Has anyone else experienced problems in getting hard drives to spin down when idle running Win 7 or Win 8 on the NUC platform?


      I have some NUC DE3815TYK's Bios 0024 that I was hoping to use for an application but have found the drive never spins down under any circumstances other than sending a spin down direct command.  I have tried Win 7 x86 Win 7 x64 and Win 8 x64 without success.


      Unfortunately I need 800 GB of standby storage making SSD's financially impractical.
