    Hello, I managed to open the old enclosure of my old HP SimpleSave drive, and I discovered that it uses a WD 500GB Scorpio Blue HDD. The problem is that it tends to spindown, and I think it has something to do with APM being enabled. Is there a way to disable it permanently in Windows, so that I can get to use it with USBLoader GX?

    Edit: The reason I opened the enclosure is because I'm planning to replace it with a new one.
