HDD's turning them selves off temporarily?

Every now and then after just browsing the internet without really using my drives, I hear one of them make a slight clicking noise, then a powering down noise.

Then as soon as I say open a shortcut on my desktop or enter a drive, I hear it start up again and it takes a few seconds

I have a Samsung F3 1tb and a WD2000JS 200gb, any way to turn this (what looks like to be) power saving mechanism, I want quick access to my drives at all times.

  1. It's in power options. Go to change plan settings, find the setting on powering down hard drives and set it to "Never".
  2. Check your power options(in control panel). There is a setting to turn off drives, after a period of non use.
  3. Thanks guys, I assumed because I set it to High performance it wouldn't do that.
