    I can hear the drive spin up where I could not on the last generation (I don't think, was running TM Manually). My old one was a 2TB and this one is the 3TB. I assumed it was spinning up every hour for Time Machine Backups. So I turned that off but it just did it again after hours of being off. Anybody know why it would spin up the drive when I am not running Time Machine?

    Writes probably some caches to the disk. However, i agree, the device should sleep, if not needed, just like a Mac. Firmware update in the future?

    Must admit, my old 3TB makes no noise at all....I am considering a new 3TB, but I'm not in a rush...My wifi is pretty good, and I recently bought new AE ( second gen) to replace the old one.

    Is it just the drive or does it cause any interference?
