This Feature can be turned OFF.
This is an additional feature to save power when the computer is not being used.
In my computer this is how it is set
when my computer goes idle
After 10 mins my HDD(SSD) turns off
After 15 mins Sleep kicks in
Then After 20 Mins Hibernate will push.
In my personal Opinion technically this feature may cause additional harm on Regular Hard Disk Drive (Because Turning off then Turning ON more frequently is what's going to happen) so turning it off when using a regular HDD is what i would suggest.
This feature works best for SSD drive that does not get affected by Turning off and/or turning on Frequently.
