question

Is this like the TOURO model that automatically sleeps every 15 minutes if it's not active? This was a big problem using with Audio or video libraries (VLC, iTunes, ect...) as every time you'd start the software or go away for a while, it would always take 10-15 seconds to come out of sleep... Any idea?
Asked by: Greg B.
Yes, it was for me after I got a powered USB hub with an off switch. Hmmm. I found a free program called Amphetamine that stops the drives from automatically turning off. In other words the drive stops spinning, but does not power off. For Mac, Amphetamine is available in the App Store.
