I bought a 2TB WD Drive that I use to store all my media on. It is currently plugged into my Airport Extreme base station so that I can wirelessly access it from my mac and watch movies, listen to music, etc. I'm just wondering, will the drive eventually go to sleep (e.g. overnight or during the day) when none of my computers are on the network and accessing it or will it stay on the whole time? Is this bad for a drive? Do I need to manually plug/unplug it if I want it off when I'm not using it? I had to reformat the dive to partition it and use it with my Mac so whatever software WAS on it is long gone.
