    Setup: MB Pro. early 2009 2.93 Ghz, 8GB RAM, 2 hard drives via optibay

    Request: utility to better sleep the hard drives/fans when not being used

    Problem: with the two hard drive setup, battery life is reduced...I knew this going in. So, I would like to purchase a utility that allows for better management of the MB Pro hardware so that, say when I am only reading something on screen with no needed hard drive activity, the hard drive goes to sleep faster than the current energy management application requires. this would help increase battery life some (not back to pre two drive setup, but better than now).

    I want to good utility and cost is no object because the cheap, even free utilities I have used in the past on other things like cleaning your mac tend to make the computer act funny (just trust me on this one).

    Any thoughts?

    Your response and time are appreciated.
