  2. USB disk spin down

    I want my USB disk to spin down when I turn the PC off.

    This USB disk is used only for backup (Windows 10 file history), and plugging it in or unplugging it often was annoying, so I decided to try leaving it plugged in. Having it spin up while the PC in on is OK, and I understand that some services like antimalware
    or defrag might cause this, but I don't like it running when the PC is off. This causes it to get warm and it make some noise. If I eject the disk before turning the PC off, it won't work for backup until I unplug/plug it again, so that is no gain in convenience.
