    Hi!
    I've got a Mac Pro 2008, with 4 noisy hard drives in it.
    I wonder if there is an easy way to manually spin down/up the unused harddrives when you feel for it? (That would be much easier that powering down the whole computer, and unplug the disks..)

    Thanks in advance!

    Just select the drive icon on the desktop and type command-e, or select eject from the File menu. Remount using Disk Utility.
