    How to make secondary HDD go to sleep in modern standby


    Windows 2004 removed the ability to use S3 instead of S0 low power idle. My pc dell g5 5590 has a primary nvme SSD os and a secondary sata HDD data configured to "raid on" on the bios ahci option is available. When it goes to sleep the HDD keeps spinning, which I don't like, especially given that before the update it would behave as I wanted.


    Is there a way to make the HDD spin down when the PC is in standby? Thanks

    :)

    Windows 10 2004 modern sleep leaves HDD on

    Hi, my PC has a primary SSD and a secondary HDD. With this holy modern sleep thing, which cannot be deactivated anymore, the secondary HDD stays on even if I manually put the PC to "sleep". It's ridiculous. I really hope someone can help me with this.

    Also, I activated through registry the HDD sleep timeout option but that's not the point, when my laptop is plugged in I want the HDD to stay on BUT it must go to sleep when I put the PC in standby mode.

    Ok with the new modern stuff but the user must have the option to choose

    How to make secondary HDD go to sleep in modern standby

    Windows 2004 removed the ability to use S3 instead of S0 low power idle. My pc (dell g5 5590) has a primary nvme SSD (os) and a secondary sata HDD (data) configured to "raid on" on the bios (acpi option is available). When it goes to sleep the HDD keeps
    spinning, which I don't like, especially given that before the update it would behave as I wanted.

    Is there a way to make the HDD spin down when the PC is in standby? Thanks

    modern standby problems entering to sleep

    Laptop Dell XPS 7590 Windows 10 2004build.

    I press the power button, laptop starts going to sleep, then if i was lucky enough when i close the lid after some time laptop stops responding to ping.

    But in most cases laptop just not going to sleep at all. Then if i look to event viewer i see events:

    Event 506: The system is entering connected standby

    Reason: Power Button.

    Event 507: The system is exiting connected standby

    Reason: Lid.

    Event 506: The system is entering connected standby

    Reason: Lid.

    Event 507: The system is exiting connected standby

    Reason: Input Keyboard.

    Interesting thing, event shows that was keyboard input, but how this could happen if the lid was closed, and i was closing it gently.

    And i can not disable modern standby, cause it is a new "feature", so hibernate is the only choice ????
