Windows 10: Hard Disk - Turn Off After Idle in Windows 10
Thanks for the reply!
Hello.How can i turn off sleep for disks?
If you mean for when HDDs are idle, then you could set this to "Never" to do so.
How can I get USB connected drives to sleep when not in use ?
Is it possible to have Windows 10 not spin up idle HDDs at ShutDown only to immediately turn them off again? Shouldn't they stay off on ShutDown since they are already off?
