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

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
