    Look in the Energy Saver control panel.

    There are jumpers on some drives, (I think IBM), that allow the drive to sleep. One jumper is Master/Slave/CS, the other is 5min/30min/no sleep.

    I had the same problem with a drive. Turned out to be my IBM drive going bad.

    The Energy controll does not do it ( tried already) it is a wester digital drive.
