Hi, I hope someone can help. My Mybook white light edition is noisy. There always seems to be a fan noise coming from it and the white light on the front continually moves up and down. My PC is off, so there shouldn't be anything writing to it etc. I'd really appreciate peoples help as the constant hum of the fan in the living room is very annoying. TIA
I thought I'd also post my startup scripts in case there is something I've put on which might be causing this:

i think that is because of transmission's (or other optware soft) requests to hdd
Thanks for the reply. I use Featurepacks to stop transmission so does that mean it shouldn't be requesting at all? Please could you help me identify what other software may be placing requests to the hdd? TIA
I'm not sure that after installing optware or Featurepacks default "HDD Standby" function will work properly, as other daemons are on-line. I'll have a proper look in the internet.
