EHD's - Turn on/off?


Recommended Posts

Hi Brian,  just quick question.  When I turn my computer off at night, should my ehd's be turned off as well.  Should I eject them?  The lights on them are still on all night and all day.


Thanks for your help.

When I shut down my computer, I also turn off each of the external HDs.

If I let my computer go to sleep and will be returning to it within the next 30 min or so, I leave the EHDs running, but they should go to sleep as well.

If I don't plan on using my external HDs, I will leave them powered off and just use my iMac. In fact, I'm doing this as I type this.
