Hi

I have set up idling times etc. for the fan and HDD activity but the HDD (Single Disk System) is constantly activating even when the PC's are not online. Can anyone suggest a reason please?

Hi - thanks for reply. The NAS is brand new - haven't started using it yet - the HDD is clunking away with everything disconnected including the LAN - the browser screen reports everything healthy.

Welcome to the forum @toxicparrot

Some packages will disable disk hibernation and there are indexing and housekeeping tasks that occur too.

Many thanks - I have succeeded in enabling the unit to close down twenty minutes after lack of activity but maybe this or something else overrides my time schedule. I have removed all packages except the very basic ones.
