I'm not sure if "keep maximum power on to the hd" is the power mode it operates in or if incorporates other settings such as spin down time. Make sure the drive isn't just going to sleep by upping the sleep timer. This would cause both a click and a noticeable pause to your OS.

David is correct though, first thing to do with any questionable drive is to pull your data from it.
