Do you keep them spinning 24/7?

Mine are set to sleep after 30 mins. My DX213 unit is set to deep sleep. Whatever that means! :D

You are the only person known to the human race who has been able to achieve this amazing and eluding task!
Maybe you can help @rhoniel as he’s threatening to abandon us soon if sleeping is not sorted.

So I selected Yes.

....but I think I selected disk hibernate of 30 mins or an hour. Something that would mean I’m away and not using them much. It won’t kick in normally as I have a CCC sync task that copies over my home brew weather station webpages every 15 mins.

NAS are on all the time, they’re servers!

Yeah Baby!

Although these days I run UniFi Controller in Docker and Surveillance Station among other services, so don’t really have a choice either.

Yes, but do they actually hypernate? Did you try sneaking up on your NAS without it noticing and listening?
Or maybe if you prefer a more scientific approach, check the logs?

Hang on, now that I read your post again. I’m confused as you, too!

If anybody is interested I can do a quick write up on HDD health / longevity of keeping them 'a spinnin' or otherwise I'd be happy to do so.

If it’s not too troublesome and it’s something that we (I) can understand.
I hope your research ended up with a conclusive conclusion.
For me, math is ok. Electricity is not (I don’t like it).
Thanks.

24/7, they're pretty power-efficient and I have them in a location that isolates drive noise.

Also, I think I've heard something about it being better to maintain consistent temperatures rather than to heat and cool the hardware repeatedly.

Synology DS218
I think I might have found the reason as why my DS218 was waking up every night at 11:36pm. I have read on QNAP knowledge base that DHCP IP address lease renewal can also wake up their NAS units. My router assigns an IP address lease for 1440 minutes (1 day) so I thought its worth a shot to assign a static IP address to the NAS unit outside the range of IP address which are being assigned by router.

I have assigned a static address to NAS (outside the DHCP severs managed range) about 3 days ago and so far my NAS has not come out of hibernation. It may be incidence of some sort but I am cautiously hopeful at this point.
BTW I have also disabled all the log functions including hibernation log and disabled the USB copy feature. And I am running RAID 1 instead of Synology hybrid RAID system. .
