    i´m having an issue with hard drive spining. I have The SSD on original HD bay and my western digital scorpio on optibay. If i eject the Western Digital from finder it spinsdown immediately. If i unmount it from disk util it spinsdown after a minute. (Because i use the command "Sudo pmset - a spindown 1" to change time from 10 minutes to 1)

    Now the issue comes when i put the computer to sleep... :(

    If i put the computer to sleep and wake up the disk spins up and i have to mount and unmount the disk so it can spindown...

    Do you have a solution for this?

    Do this happen if i put the western digital in original HD bay?

    Yes it do. :D

    I haven't found a solution yet. Seems buggy. Saw a script somewhere that would mount the drive, access a file, then unmount it. Not sure if you could make that happen automatically, or if you'd have to run it each time you woke it up from sleep.
