any way to check what is keeping the disk running? / N54L

Recommended Posts

Hi Friends,

 

I have a brand spankin new N54L that I set up recently, but I'm having a hard time figuring out what is keeping the disks running. Is there any way to check?

 

I have a 8gb usb w/ XPEnoboot 5.1-5022.3 plugged in for the NAS to boot from, and just a single 3TB drive plugged in at the moment. Hdparm works in immediately spinning down the disk, but it immediately starts back up. I have SABNZBD running, but that is the only app I installed.

 

Thanks!

I believe SABNZBD will prevent the HDD's spinning down.

Thanks for letting me know. I thought that SABNZBD prevented NAS hibernation (makes sense), but I didn't realize it would also prevent spindown.

 

Is there an alternative I can use or something else I can do?
