Re: Green computing?

I would like to add that the settings work only once. They are lost on Resume. rc.local seems to be executed only at Startup only.

A use case being that a system wakes up a remote server via magic packet, runs a backup, then puts the the remote server back to sleep. I would like that the HDA wakes up if there is a DHCP request...

Problem resolved - thanks.

Closing thoughts ...

I tried your's and various other potential cures but this disk does not spin down. However, continuing troubleshooting under in this "suggestions" forum is the wrong place so I stop here ...

Re: Green computing?

Thank you very much. I will try it (again with hdparm). Is 1 minute not very short, i.e. does the hdd not start and stop all the time?
