    Hi,

    I have a PowerMac G4.

    I have a main hard disk which is 60gb and slave which is 200gb. I have noticed that the slave drive powers down after a while when not being used, and takes a while to kick back in when I try to access it. Is this normal?

    Thanks in advance,

    Mj

    are they going to sleep? go to the energy saver in system prefs and uncheck the "put hard disks to sleep whenever possible" a little late but i hope that helps
