XPEnology on N54L installed, HDD question


Recommended Posts

I just got the N54L and have XPEnology installed natively on a usb and DSM is working perfectly fine. I set the HDD to hibernate within 10 mins of activity. How do I check if this is working or not? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

In control panel / hardware / HDD Hibernation, you can check the "Enable hibernation logs".

In the System logs, you have messages like "Internal disks woke up from hibernation". No message when they hibernate, only when they wake up.

It will not be hibernating because lots of packages stop it hibernating.

 

If you shut down all the packages, it should hibernate. By turning them on one at a time, you can then experiment to find out which packages stop it hibernating.

Honestly, I find the hdd spin down a waste of time...

 

Too many things can wake them back up, and you end up with them spinning up every 20mins...

Not worth the power saving over the wear and tear of spin ups every few minutes.
