@dlandon@jonathanm   I am just piecing things together but would this work?   hdparm -S0 $(ls /dev/sd*|grep '[a-z]$') >/dev/null 2>&1   Disclaimer, I am not experienced with this at all......it was cobbled together with things I found in the forum so take this as a question and not as a solution to anyone reading this. If it does, now I need to figure out how to add it to user scripts.   Thanks for your time in advance if someone decides to help
