    I am not quite sure the difference between the AUTO and ON power options. When I have it set to ON the drive will power on when the computer powers on, power off when the computer powers off and it will spin down when it has not been used for a while. Isn't the ON option not supposed to spin down when the drive has not been in use for a while?

    Currently the AUTO setting does the same as the ON setting. It powers on and off with the computer and spins down when the drive has not been used in a while.

    Also is there anyway to disable the button light? It can be a bit annoying when I am trying to sleep. (I leave my computer on 24hrs a day most of the time. )


    Note: I am using a LaCie d2 Quadra Hard Drive

    i am going to bump on this one, as i am trying to get the same information.
    i have a lacie d2 quadra v.2 and i would like to avoid it spinning down, without success.
