The Disable Hard Disk option after setting in Power Options allows users to turn off the hard drives after detecting a specified idle time.

Turning off your hard drives automatically can help you save power and extend the battery life of a PC.

Some Windows systems may have very small amounts (bursts) of disk activity, separated by relatively long periods of disk idle time. This trend of disk activity has an impact on the system's energy savings as the drive is powered up periodically. The disk then remains in the boot state for at least the idle time of the disk, even if the amount of disk activity causing the disk rotation is very small. .

the Hard drive bursts out ignoring time The Power Options setting allows users to skip this burst of disk activity until a specified time when the Disable Hard Disk After setting determines whether a hard disk is idle. By default, the hard disk's ignorance duration is set to 0 (do not ignore the disk burst activity).

AHCI Link Power Management is a technique in which the AHCI SATA controller places the SATA link on the internal hard drive and the SSD drive in very low power mode.

You can use the following settings:

  • active = Neither HIPM nor DIPM allowed. The link feed management is not used.
  • HIPM = HIPM (Energy Management of Host-initiated links) only is allowed
  • HIPM + DIPM = HIPM and DIPM are allowed
  • DIPM = Only Device Enabled Power Management (DIPM) is allowed
  • The lowest = HIPM, DIPM, and DEVSLP (if DEVSLP is supported by the storage device) are allowed.

Open a command prompt with elevated privileges and run the following command:

Add: Copy and paste the following text and press Enter:
