[Closed for now] Harddrive Powersaving questions

Postby J.Naw on Wed Oct 31, 2012 10:55 am

Hello, I think i have traced my slowness of cinnamon. It seems that cinnamon runs slowly when it is trying to go into park mode(Which is very noisy), then trying to slightly power down for power saving. I think that if i turn off the power saving, Cinnamon should run faster, and more responsive, If it does not work, I will like to turn it back on. Is there any way to do this??? :?:

Settings (Power, acpi ) should be under the control panel for this edition

Yes, But is there anyway to stop the harddrive from going into power saving mode?
