well, all was fine for a few days but today ultrabay went to sleep
and second hard drive disappeared from explorer. a few days back
i installed lenovo power management driver (although there is no
lenovo power manager for windows 8 atm available for thinkpad
laptops) but that didn't change the behaviour or ultrabay. i also
deinstalled lenovo hotspot service yesterday and then decided
(since i presumed it is not needed) to deinstall the power management
driver too. still, ultrabay was working fine and never went to sleep.
until today. what gives? all the power setting in windows 8 have been
untouched although i did change a few setting regarding critical battery
power notifications, but that shouldn't in any way change the behaviour
of the ultrabay. i'll try reinstalling lenovo power management driver
and see what happens next.

reinstalled lenovo power management driver although i believe
it has nothing to do with ultrabay going off to sleep. also, i have
mounted an iso image off of ultrabay hard drive and left it in a
deamon tools virtual drive. somehow i think that alone will prevent
ultrabay hdd going off to sleep mode. will experiment some more.
knock on wood, all good for now.
