First. sorry for my english.
I have a Seagate 1Tb USB external hard drive, and after 15min of inactivity, the drive shutdown imself.
But without any reason, sometime the drive is reactivated, it's like Win 7 pool the drive for "i don't know what" and 15min after, the drive is shuting down again. I have a little utility that I can decide the amount of time the drive will go in sleep mode, so i've try 30min, 1h, 2h.... Always the same thing, when the drive go in sleep mode, few hours after Windows pool the drive to check someting or only check if the drive is "alive", but it's wake the drive for "nothing".
My question is if there is a way to tell Windows to "never" pool the drive, so when the drive go in sleep mode and ony wake when I decide to go on the drive by myself.
Hope you understand my question!
