Question by nonagon: My external hard drive spins down after 10 minutes of inactivity. How to keep that from happening?
I have a 500GB WD My Book connected to my Vista PC via Firewire, and I use it frequently. It works fine, but it can take around 15-30 seconds for the drive to spin back up out of power save mode, and during file operations related to the drive, applications freeze until it has had time to spin back up.

I would ideally like to control the amount of time that elapses prior to it spinning down (because I assume the power save mode extends the life of the drive as well as saving power). WD says the spindown delay is set at 10 minutes and is not configurable.

So, does anyone know of an application that will periodically write a small amount of data to the drive so it won’t spin down? Thanks in advance.
Note: Windows does NOT provide power management options for external drives through control panel.
Also, I’m pretty sure you cannot control settings for an external device such as a Firewire hard drive through system BIOS.

Best answer:

Answer by Richard F
Go to Control panel and find Power Options. Pull it up and you’ll see settings for power.

    This attachment makes a versatile tool even more versatile. I’ve used it to trim sheet metal ductwork and make cuts in wooden siding in a tight spot under the floor of a room addition. I’ve also used it to trim off PVC pipe ends from the inside out. It adds a whole new aspect to the Dremel tool by helping me to reach those difficult spots like that. Frequently, I use it to cut off nails and screws that can’t be removed. This attachment stays on my Dremel tool all the time now. I’m glad I bought this one! I’m still exploring its uses. Always remember to go slow and make several passes at the material as you cut so as not to overload the Dremel.

    This should prove to be a first class item. When working in cramped areas this is better then the Flex Shaft since you can get the whole tool in where you need it. Plus the quick installation is so useful.
