Hello,
I upgraded my system with SSD in standart disk place, after that I bought HDD cady for optical bay, put in it standart HDD, and it works perfect, except - he always spins. He never sleeps. I set in power options to turn off hdd after 10 minutes, bet HDD still spins. PC is in idle, no any activity. Whats the problem? Windows 10 see this HDD like normal Sata 3 disk. Where problem is?
Thanks.

set it to 1 minute, see if there is a program accessing your HDD every 5 minutes or so

I set it to one minute, HDD still runs. No stop. No one program accessing HDD....

Just a wild guess - and I mean no offense, but ... are you 100% sure that's not the fan?

Yes i am sure. I feel small vibration and noise. I hear it, and in other place of PC i hear fan. No, HDD never stops...

You're sure that you're on the power mode that you edited?
Mine switch for no apparent reason sometimes, so I had it edited in the registry to always be set on Performance.

Yes, I am on right power mode. I know how it must to work, but it doesn't. Just HHD never stops... but if I conecting external USB drive, windows stops it after one minute, but standart HDD in optical disk bay - NO.

No any solutions? Maybe it is depends from bad cheap optical drive bay?

I swiched standart HHD to its native place, and put SSD to optical drive bay, OS instaled on SSD. And my HDD stil CANT GO TO SLEEP when idle. It spins ALWAYS. WHY? I cant understand, why my standart hdd can't go to sleep when idle and not using. Power setings set to turn off hdd after 5 minnutes... Maybe the reason is that standart HDD set as primary, not logical partition?
