Maybe i just answered my own question... i had the high performance setting for power settings, but apparently it still set the HD to go to sleep after 20 minutes. I wonder if it would allow it to sleep based on me not accessing it?? Is that possible?
I just set it to never shut down. We will see...
Nope. It hasn't helped. I still seem to get the Harddrive "spin up" on directories that have not been read from for a while as it takes forever for windows explorer to catch up! 10 seconds at least on a medium size directory. After that its responsive...
Anyone have any ideas here? It's like accessing any of my other drives takes a while like they are all asleep. onboard raid 0 (though i am not using Intel drivers -- just hte built in windows), external usb drives, etc.
