Hard drive shuts off

  isititis 14:25 03 Apr 2011

Hello all, win 7.
Hard drive switches off if pc hasn't been used for about 10 mins. If I leave it playing music or downloading something, the start-up button is flashing, and when the mouse is moved the disk can be heard to start.
I have to go out now and will be back about 6ish.
Thanks for your help.

Thank you for the link. It has worked a treat, so I'll click resolved. I don't find Win 7 as user friendly as XP...but that's me.
