Currently Being ModeratedFeb 13, 2007 11:44 AM (in response to cidion)The drive sleep time is actual 10 minutes so unless you wait for that time then it won't sleep.
You can manually set the drive sleep time to whatever your want by using the…
sudo pmset -a disksleep [disk sleep time in minutes]
e.g. sudo pmset -a disksleep 5

Currently Being ModeratedFeb 13, 2007 12:27 PM (in response to infinite vortex)Hi Ned,
Well, I've let it sit a few times for 30min + with the same result.
I use the MBP for over 12hrs a day, and it's defiantly doing something abnormal. There are no knocking or clicking noises though.. just spinning (almost like it's the fan, but it's not. I know where the fans are in relation to the HD)17in MBP, Mac OS X (10.4.8)
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 14, 2007 10:10 AM (in response to cidion)Same to mine. I changed the wait till sleep time to 5 min. Once I had it to sleep while reading an ebook but then never again. While the sleeping drive my MBP was super quiet, you couldn't hear anything!
I have 2 gigs of RAM but the drive is still spinning. What can I do to send it to sleep while reading ebooks?
Hope, someone has an answer.PowerMac G5 2x2,0GHz, MBP C2D 15" 2,16GHz, Mac OS X (10.4.8)
