    The power saving feature is in the drive itself.

    When WD Green drives were first released you could disable the power saver using WDIDLE.
    After a couple of years they changed the firmware and then the best you could do was set the time to 5 minutes.
    I had both versions.

    Someone on SevenForums suggested using KeepHDAlive and I've used that ever since (in combination with using WDIDLE to set the drive to 5 minutes).
