    I have a 500Gb LaCie HDD connected to my PC - however it runs constantly. Even with the PC is off, you can hear it running on AC power.

    Anyone know if there is any software from LaCie that can be downloaded which will put the drive to sleep if not in use / PC off? I'm sure Maxtor do this now, so it would be good if I could get the same with this LaCie drive.

    Had a look on their website and it wasn't clear if there was such a solution.

    Cheers

    Some of the drives from LaCie ship with similar software either built-in or as a download. My only advise is to check the box it came in or the user-manual, practically ever off-the-shelf HDD has this technology, generally it spins the HDD down after a set period of inactivity.
