    Delete:How to prevent windows from turning on hard drives to restart?


    edit: nevermind found answer while looking for something totally unrelated. Wonder why search didnt find it. Ca sara sara




    I have 2 external hard drives that are always on but in sleep mode until I need them.

    I want to be able to have windows NOT power them on when restarting.

    Is there a way to do this?

    BTW, hibernate is turned off.

    There is no way to do so since Windows check to see if anything is going to be written to the drives before loggin off.

    Cheers for the reply, pity as it slows down rebooting the PC a startup a bit.
