    I just bought a 1tb Seagate hard drive, and it goes to sleep after 2 minutes every time. I have connected to my airport extreme, and was wondering if anybody had any experience with this? It is really annoying having it fall asleep so soon. I also have it set for hard drives to never sleep in the preferences. Thanks

    I had this same problem, I've tried the FreeAgent Desk 1.5TB and had it sleep. Then also tried another enclosure with a non Seagate drive and also had the same problem. It would be nice if you could configure your AEBS to not sleep the disk...

    I am having the same issue with my seagate 300 gig. How do you ask it not to sleep disks? I have almost given up on this drive as useless with the AEBS. It will work for a while, then spin down and then it is unrecognized and locks up the AEBS!
