Roon causes NAS to run all the time

I run the Roon app on an iMac running Mojave 10.14.6 or an iPad pro with the latest ios.
Roon Server 1.6 is running on an SSD on a QNAP NAS 453be with up to date OS.

Network Details (Including networking gear model/manufacturer and if on WiFi/Ethernet)
Araknis AN 300 4L2W and QNAP NAS 453be is ethernet to this unit, not wifi.

Audio Devices (Specify what device you’re using and its connection type - USB/HDMI/etc.)
Linn Selekt DSM with katalyst ethernet connected to same router as NAS.

According to QNAP support the reason my NAS runs 24/7 is Roon. Can I turn the Roon server off when I am not using it so that my NAS can go to sleep?

Hi @David_Podeschi,

Yes, you can stop RoonServer on the Mac when not in use and then start it up again when you’re ready to use Roon.

I think that if Roon has been turned off, when you start it up again, it will begin a scan of your music storage to see what has changed. This may or may not impact playback until this startup scan has completed.
