power management



In power management, I have my hard drives turn off set to never. I was wondering After what period of inactivity do you guys have your hard drives turning off? Is it bad to put never?

If I have them turn off after say an hour, and then I come back to my computer, how long is the wait for them to turn back on?

Is it better for the harddrives to turn off/on a few times a day, or better to just leave them on all the time? in terms of the healthiness of them, degredation of performance, etc.

sorry, i dont have an answer for you, but please dont post the same message in more than one forum

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
