brand new t530, ordered with two hard drives. lenovo caddy in ultrabay. it seems
that ultrabay hard drive is going off to sleep mode after a period of inactivity. is there
a was to disable powering down of the hard drive in ultrabay because this is not
acceptable. any ideas? much appreciated.
edit: i am not using a dvd drive nor will i be switching between dvd drive
in ultrabay and caddy with hard drive. caddy with hdd will always be in
ultrabay and i'd like to have access to it at all times. also, i don't have lenovo
power manager installed. there's just power management in control panel of
windows 8 and i have turned all power savings off. although, in windows 8 (afaik)
there is no setting for ultrabay or anything similar. also, all hard drive power off
settings are disabled meaning they are set to 99999 minutes.

You need your Lenovo Tool Box. It comes installed. It has the power manager you need for all components. You can't rely on just Windows. What happens when you press the Blue Button?
