Re: ~~ Power Options (in control panel) ~~
there is a setting for shutting down the hd with no activity. I have mine set at never. If you are downloading you should not have an inactive drive. If it is a large file I would reccomend using a download manager in case you loose the connecion you can restart the dl from where you left off.
