I have a TS-212 ... but the spin down feature does not work. when I probe the resource, there is a process called "qWatcodogd: keeping alive every 5 seconds..." what is this? Is this process prevent HD from going standby or spin down? I don't have BT or Twonkie running. Just a standard NAS setting.
Any idea why? I would prefer to leave the NAS on 24/7 but would like the HD go standby when not used after 20 min or so. IF not, probably better to schedule turn ON/OFF but some people mention it's not good for HD, I'm not sure if this true as I do the same for my desktop PC and I never have a problem.
I hope Qnap have this fix if it's actually a problem with their firmware.
NOte: I also tried the script as suggested, the HD go into standby mode right the way as soon as I run it. So, what's going on here? It's going into standby when prompted, but not on its own as set in the admin page???
Any suggestion would be appreciated.
