    Same as the title. I've set my Drive to never sleep in order to try and fix a CD Drive that randomly spins up on my laptop and now I am wandering if the drive is set to never go to sleep, does is stay up even when the computer is in Sleep Mode?

    Sleep and Hard Drives

    I don't want my drives to sleep.

    If I have the 'global' setting in Power & Sleep to 'Never Sleep,' do I also have to go into Advanced to set the 'Hard Drives Sleep...; to a high number, or does that global setting make this setting moot?

    Thank you

    Computer Wakes Up From Sleep And Goes Back To Sleep?

    Maybe you have something configured to sleep when idle. Check that on your power settings.
