    Energy Settings - do your hard drives go to sleep ?

    Level 1
      Hello everyone,

      I am wondering what most of you do in terms of energy settings ( on a windows computer ), do you have your hard drives set to go to sleep after so many hours ? or do you have them set to *never* go off ?

      At the moment I have my drives all set to never go to sleep, but I am now wondering if I should be setting them to "sleep" in 4 or 5 hours.

      I am a bit hesitant to do this, because I wonder if I am encoding video, and the 4 hour mark kicks in while an encode is happening - WILL the computer go to sleep ? or will it continue on and finished the video ?

      Thanks for any information.
