I have about 25 External Firewire Hard Drives. I usually keep them powered down (since most of them are for back ups). I only turn them on when I need to access a drive, then unmount them and turn them off when done backing up... so most of my drives do not have a lot of run-time on them. My problem is that I keep my individual hard drive power supplies plugged in to various surge protected strips (that power lots of things). In particular I have 6 G-Tech Drives and I noticed today that (4) of the (6) Power Supplies were "dead" (no green lights). Apparently they crapped out over the past few months and I did not notice. I called G-Tech and they just said that they died over time because i kept them plugged in (even with the drives not turned on). So my question is... "Do you know of anyone who sells some type of individual shut-off switch that I could plug in between my power strips and each one of these power supplies no that I could manually switch them off when not needed. Otherwise, I have to plug and unplug all these power supplies in constantly into the power strips - major pain! Thanks for any ideas!
