View Full Version : [SOLVED] Seagate - FreeAgent Desk, external USB 1.5 T Drive

Lots of traffic about the 'sleep mode' causing this drive to shut down and not be visible to Linux.

I have found a solution to turn 'sleep mode' off, but it requires a windows machine.

Is there a recent solution using ubuntu, that I missed?

I went ahead and installed the drive ( plugged it in ).
Deleted all the pre-installed apts.

Working fine with no problems.

I've got the 2TB drive, works great. I have the opposite problem, mine never goes into sleep mode. Any ideas? I have loaded the dashboard program onto a windows VM inside my ubuntu install to configure the sleep timer. But that doesn't seem to work.
