Yikes! Ext. HD Goes to Sleep At Will!
Authored by: davidas on Nov 10, '06 05:02:27AM

Hi, this seemed like an appropriate thread to post my question. I've got a LaCie FW 360 Extreme which goes to sleep, spins down after a few moments when not accessed. I've got the "Put the hard disk to sleep when possible" setting unchecked, but it doesn't affect this particular drive. In addition, I've got a 500 GB striped RAID zero and two other FW externals running with no problem. I've run diagnostics and repaired directories using DiskWarrior and DiskUtility to no avail. I've been using the drive as a scratch volume for media so these spin downs and ups are a real pain. Anybody have any ideas? I haven't installed Development Tools, but will I need to? Or should I just contact LaCie? Many thanks in advance for any help!

All the best,


David Smith
