HDD problems

After testing, scanning with all tutorials from your forum i can't fix my problems with HDD.

My 1TB WD disk constant goes to sleep. I don't understand why, coz other two HDD are ok. Is there some stuff with jumpers? Im not sure if this is sleeping problem, but when i open HDD, drive needs +/- 10 sec to establish.

How to fix this? and another problem, when hdd goes back to "sleep mode" almost all the time crash my PC (BSOD).

Like i said before, disk is tested with chkdsk C: /F /R and HDD diagnostic utility...

Given that it crashes, I am thinking you might have a problem with your power supply, or you are overloading one of the rails by having all the hard drives connected to the same rail.
