    A little help please


    Hello guys! I have an asus n56vv and I recently mounted an ssd and placed the old hdd in the optical caddy so I can use both of them. Of course the ssd has the os on it, because that was the whole idea of upgrading.
    However, I am having some problems. First, the hdd does not seem to stop spinning, or at least slow down, as I can clearly hear it. I don't really mind the noise, but I guess it's draining power when not in use. And above that, it is very slow when opening the D partition or anything that is not on the ssd. That is a little odd since the hdd is always spinning and it has 7200rpm.
    The second problem is that the notebook is very slow when coming back from sleep. On the hdd, the resume process took ~2 seconds or less. On the ssd it takes ~8 seconds.
    Finally, the last problem would be that at startup, the search is not working until I manually end the task from task manager and restart it. I have heard that it's about indexing, but I turned on everything that has to do with indexing and it still does not work.

    I would really apreciate some help in any of these matters. Thank you!

    Did W10 come with it, Did you upgrade from other Windows or is it a clean install ?

    Odd, most of things like that happen on upgrade, clean install usually fixes them.
    To get HDD to spin down when you want you can go to Advanced settings in Power settings and manually input time.
    For wake up time, you now have to disks to wake up, you can try disconnecting HDD temporarily and see if that's the reason.
    Don't know about search problem, maybe you should run "sfc /scannow" and "dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth" (without quotes) from Command prompt as Administrator. That should check and fix system files.

    I tried to change the power options and set the hdd to turn off after 1 minute. For wake up, I shall try to pull out the optical caddy and see if the wake on ssd only lasts less. Also, I ran sfc /scannow and there were no problems. Thanks for the reply and I will be back with the results

    The boot up and wake from sleep times are the same with or without the hdd
