    The Turn off hard disk after option is to turn off (spin down) HDDs after X amount of minutes of being idle (unused).

    The "Sleep after" option is to put your computer to sleep after X amount of idle minutes.

    It would be pointless to have he HDDs turn off at the same time you put the computer to sleep.

    Hope this helps. :)

    So turn off HDD should be after sleep?

    Before sleep if you wanted to.

    Can't turn the HDD's off if the computer is already in sleep mode. In sleep mode, the HDD's are turned off by default.

    When i set to default, the HDD is turn off after 20mins but sleep is only after 15mins. I assume that is wrong?

    It wouldn't work very well for the reason above.

    If i am downloading a large file and left the computer untouched, will the download stop if the computer go into sleep mode or turn hdd off mode? How do i prevent this from happening?

    The computer and HDD would still be in use while downloading, so the computer wouldn't go into sleep mode.

    Hello Sasha,

    You might not have hibernate enabled for hybrid to show up.

    I always enable hibernate by using the cmd command , but after every 2-3 reboots , hibernate is automatically disabled . Why is this .?
