Just a question. Does Linux/Pluto have any power management options? (i.e. spin down of hard discs when not in use, etc)
I haven't built my core yet but I keep wondering if all of the hard drives will keep spinning even if nothing is recording.
I'm alos interested in this discussion - so would kindly invite others to discuss. I also think that running 160W PC all the time is a bit of waste...
I plan to do the following :
- have 1 HD with system
- have 2 HDs in RAID for /home directory with spinning down when not necessary (I guess I'll have to move /logs and possibly other directories that get frequently written)
I plan to use CT479 mobile processor adapter on my ASUS MB to get much lower power consumption.... Is anyone aware of any other low priced desktop mobile combo ?
Any other ideas or better solutions ?
