So. I have a quetsion regarding an external hard drive to my Mac Mini
The drive I am currently using (A Seagate 750GB) doesn't spin down / standby when nothing is playing, so it keeps on running through periods of inactivity, increasingly with an annoying whir.
Is this an issue with the MAC - i.e. that I won't be able to find a HDD which chills the f*** out once in a while?
Or do most HDD's have the ability to take a breath and put themselevs into standby, and I have just got a retarded example?
