    I have my extra harddrives set to hibernate after 20 min. Though they spin up again after they have been hibernated but not accessed by me. Don't know if it's a program or what. Is there something I could use to see if there is a program accessing them or could you think of anything else accessing them.

    :confused:

    Yeah, Windows is probably performing maintenance on them. Makes it so it's pretty much pointless to bother setting them to hibernate at all.
