Sleep both HDDs, but not SSD
So I have 1 SSD which my OS is installed on, and 2 HDDs, which are a huge source of noise within my PC. One drive is purely storage, no installed programs or services, usage on this drive when the computer is idle should be as close to 0% as can be. The other only has games installed on it, and if I'm not at the computer, its usage should also be pretty low.
My point being, neither of these drives need be on during times when I am away from my computer. I would turn on the sleep hard drive option in power settings, but this would restrict the TRIM function, or what ever the "garbage collection" function is on an SSD that keeps it optimized. So is there a way around this that won't effect my SSD, but will allow my computer to be virtually silent when I'm not using it, given these hard drives are the noisiest parts by far?
