    I currently have 4 drives in a ZFS 'stripe' configuration - however when copying files to my NAS (HP Microserver N40L), or trying to play fiels from the NAS, these drives KEEP spinning up and down - I believe that this is because my power management settings are incorrect

    My current settings, for all 4 drives, are:

    HDD Standby: 10
    APM - Level 64

    What settings should I use so that my power management works PROPERLY? - In addition to slowing things down, I am worried that my drives spinning up and down every few seconds will damage them

    Thanks
