I am currently trying to turn off the power to one of my hard drives but am unable to via
hdpram, but I have had some success using the gnome-disk-utility. I am wondering what command does gnome-disk-utility send when turning off power for hard drive ? Is there another command besides
hdpram i could use from terminal to cut power to a drive?
udisksctl power-off --block-device /dev/sdc seems to work, however the drive does not stay powered off as it boots back up again becuase auto-mount must be enbled or the drive wont mount at all. .
if anyone knows of an alternative to
hdpram utility I can use in Ubuntu that would be great
