NoSleepHD protects my sanity

March 9, 2009 at 7:54 pm (Technology) (, , , )

NoSleepHD is an windows utility that stops your external hard drive from going to sleep. Windows by default will put to sleep external devices to save energy and such. The problem I have is when my external decides to wind up, which can be at any given time, gives me some terrible audio feedback on my speakers. So, until I get that problem fixed (Most likely convert to all digital audio) this will do. Also people who need the performance perks of having a external that is ready to go will also find use in this program. It’s pretty straightforward, free and you can download it here.

    I didn’t even notice the whirring of my drive awakening until I read this. It cranked into gear as I just wrote that sentence (how ironic…)

    Thanks for the tip!
