    Windows 10 14.x RST - HDD not spinning down

    Seketh

      Hi!

       

      I have a pretty silent PC, so the only noise when it's idling or browsing the web is my storage HDD spin, so I use the Windows power options to spin it down and stop the noise after 1 minute.

       

      This is not working in Windows 10 however. It works as it should with RST uninstalled. I've haven't tried previous RST drivers (13.x, 12.x), since I suppose they weren't built for Windows 10.

       

      Am I missing some option, or is this some kind of bug? Everything is properly configured in the BIOS and, as I said, the HDD will spin down if RST is uninstalled.

       

      Motherboard is Maximus VI Gene (z87).
