Hello

I recently hooked up my 2nd hard drive. It is working great. I have noticed that if i am searching sites and reading it sounds like something goes to sleep inside my computer. I think its my 2nd hard drive because everything works fine on my main hard drive but when i try to access my 2nd hard drive it takes a couple of seconds for it to wake up and i can hear it waking up inside the case. Why is that and how can i fix it ?

Thanks

there is power management icon in your control panel if using windows to set this and then also in the bios as well. just disable them both and you should be fine
