    Were you looking at: /Users/username/Library or /Library

    When I go: Finder >> Go >> Computer >> Macintosh HD >> Library - the sub-dir that you are looking for is sitting there.

    edit it in "textedit" app and save it to your desktop with the same name and .plist then copy it to that folder and select "replace" done. next run the command "sudo hdapm disk1 max" or you can replace max by a number between 1-254.....thats it...just have to run it at every boot.

    alright. I'm talking to the dev now actually to find out how to get it to load at every boot. ill let you know what he says.

    also he said he's going to work on getting hdapm to "follow" the HDD, since i notified him that sometimes the drives randomly switch, and he said a few other people said the same thing. he said as a work around you can edit the .plist so it effects disk1 and disk0. he said that having hdapm run on an ssd has no adverse effects, i think it just doesn't do anything since its not a spinning drive.
