hi

I have the following in /etc/hdparm.conf:

Code:
/dev/sdb {
spindown_time = 121
}
/dev/sdc {
spindown_time = 121
}
/dev/sdd {
spindown_time = 121
}
/dev/sde {
spindown_time = 121
}
/dev/sdf {
spindown_time = 121
}
/dev/sdg {
spindown_time = 121
}
/dev/sdh {
spindown_time = 121
}
/dev/sdi {
spindown_time = 121
}

non of my drives are spinning down, if I issue a
sudo hdparm -y /dev/sdh


then they do spin down.

4 drives (sdb > sde) are a member of a software (mdadm) raid and /dev/sda is ssd so excluded that
