I just mounted a 2TB usb HDD via SMB protocol and can access my files from VLC player which is great BUT the HDD is always on(running/disk is turning) which is completely unnecessary and also creates constant noise. The same HDD goes to automatic sleep mode when attached to laptop. So the request is enable the sleep mode for USB devices and wake them up on demand. Thanks a lot

One more info. If I software shutdown Max2Play (from web interface), then the hdd goes into sleep mode. Best would be to add explicit configuration to this feature in the web interface. Sleep mode timeout In seconds/always on and immediate manual sleep mode. Thanks27. Mai 2020 at 15:18 #48866
The problem with sleep mode on the Pi 4 should now have been fixed in our beta. After 10 minutes of inactivity, the hard drive should go into sleep mode.
If you want to change the time after the hard drive goes into sleep mode, you would have to edit the hdidle config.7. Juni 2020 at 23:48 #48955
I have been on max2play 2.52 since the begging
If I hit the update max2play button in web interface then it says no update available. Any suggestion?
pi@tv-hi-pi:~ $ sudo hd-idle -t sda1
sudo: unable to resolve host tv-hi-pi: Name or service not known
Maybe the issue is with the host name? I can only acces the web interface via the IP address and not via the max2play host..

Apparently I made a mistake because sleep mode already works with the Pi 4 in version 2.52. So we haven’t made any changes in the beta. To change the settings for sleep mode, please use the hdidle config.
Please excuse the previous misleading information.
