My external drive spool up every once and a while and slow down my system, just for sec. If I manually eject them, the only way I know how to get them back online is to unplug, then replug them back in. I've tried Disk Utility, and it sees them, but doesn't mount them I'm sure theres a way I'm missing. Also, ideally I'd like to have my regularly sched backups wake my externals, and then put them back to sleep. I have no need for them other than the backups. Thanks!!!
