Replacing Super Drive with Hard Dirve, possible to make the HD sleep?
I am replacing my 2011 macbook pro 15" super drive with a enclosure and a 500gb Momentus XT hybrid HDD.
And here is the questions
Since i am using a SSD for my original Hard disk place. Will the Super drive 500gb Momentus XT go to sleep when i don't use it? (is the IR sensor use for that?)
Because, i will only use my Momentus XT, purely as a storage that store large movie, pictures files, which does not require to read and write most of the time.
And by the way, is it the same performance if i use the Momentus XT as storage only compare to normal 7200rpm HDD?
Sorry for my bad english-_-
Is this a good question?
