Good morning community!
I know, it has been discussed before but I want to find a solution
The HDDs of my QNAP NAS are not going to sleep as long as Roon Server is running on my Windows 7 Server. When Roon Server is not running, the HDDs go to sleep after one hour.
As far as I know this is because Roon is scanning the network for Roon devices, what keeps the NAS awake.
Before my QNAP I had a self-built NAS running FreeNAS / NAS4Free and there it worked without problems. NAS was running and HDDs went to sleep after one hour, tough Roon Server was running. When I started playing a song, the HDDs woke up.
I know there are a lot of people who say: let the HDDs run, its better than doing spin up, spin down constantly. But I am a father of two kids I only have time 1 or 2 times a week to listen to some music in the evening. So the NAS is not used 90% of the time…
Could there be any possibility to let the HDDs go to sleep though Roon is running? Maybe blocking the ports Roon is using for finding devices on a QNAP internal firewall? Or is there any possibility to start Roon Server on my Windows 7 machine using Logitech Harmony?
Thx and have a great week!
