[SOLVED] Re: HDD switches off after a while (spin down)

Hi all, And thank all you for replies. It worked with below command, but only when I entered from terminal, not when I put it in rc.d (with cat /proc/sys/vm/laptop_mode I got 1 as result) or in S-firewall.sh even with cat /proc/sys/vm/laptop_mode I got 0 as result. /etc/rc.d/rc.laptop-mode stop I ca...

Re: HDD switches off after a while (spin down)

Are you sure it not or how do you know? My laptop I can't hear my Hard Drive is spinning or not. What desktop are you using? The only desktop that runs good on my laptop is Mate the other desktop ran slow. That could be a problem for you. My laptop has AMD Athlon Dual-Core QL-62, 3gb of ram and 160...

Re: HDD switches off after a while (spin down)

What type of computer do you have and what cable did you unplug? If it is a laptop and you unplug it and power down the Hard Drive it is trying to save on battery power. I don't you can stop that from doing it. Yes, it is a laptop. I think also it is something like a battery saver, but it is strang...

Re: HDD switches off after a while (spin down)

I believe in the bios you set the power setting and one is for the Hard Drive. I think I seen it in my bios. Hi all, I believe is not from bios because it happens only when I unplug the cable with Porteus running. When I unplug the cable before boot and booting up unplugged Is not happening. It spi...

Re: Create a swap file on your hard drive

That's something different... I'm sure the mods will suggest to open a new thread. However; If I understand correctly, you boot porteus from an usb-flash and your internal HDD switches off after a while. Is this correct? Does this always happen after the same amount of elapsed time? This would indi...

spin down of HDD

Well, the purpose of a swap file is to "enlarge" the available amount of RAM. It has to be stored on a physical partition to fulfill this purpose. Running an OS (Porteus) in RAM and to place a swap-file also into RAM, which in turn would occupy a portion of RAM permanently, makes no sense, right? T...

[SOLVED] Re: Create a swap file on your hard drive

Thank you all for posts.
The only chance is to make it on sdax?
Because I am using Porteus in copy to ram cheatcode. This is the reason I have no sda in my location.
Yes, this worked:

Code: Select all

root@localhost:~# mkfileswap /mnt/sda2/Porteus.swap 50
All the best,
