'Never' is my setting

...and probably the best choice.
Dan, so yours is "never" also ?
I know there used to be some issues with computers not coming back on, but I thought those were long gone, maybe not ?
So, never is the best choice ? how come you say that Dan.
For single disks it may be possible to use the sleep function, but I would not advise it. The power saved is negligent and is offset by the wear-and-tear of the start-stop cycles. For multiple disks in a Raid configuration, you have the problem of staggered spin-up sequences. So, Dan is right, it is not worth the trouble.
You took the words out of my mouth, Harm. Plus there's just the annoyance of waiting for your drives to awake from their slumber.
I never use it.
