Windows 7: How do I disable the hard disk spin down? DISREGARD

How do I disable the hard disk spin down? DISREGARD

I can only change it to 99999999999999999999999999999999 minutes but I want it disabled completely. Why won't it let me turn it off completely instead of having to type in 99999999999999999999999999999999 amount of minutes? I know it's essentially the same thing but I should be able to disable it some how, right?

I'm talking about when it is plugged in, never on battery.

Damnit, nevermind. I just had to put 0.
