Make a new app to control the time for the idle timer in ALL new disks like in the good old time with wdidle3.

BPVT series are uncontrollable and with 8 sec to stop. they`re likely to die within their warranty period of 36 months or shortly after that. It`s a chinese way of thinking - i`ll sell them crap but they won`t notice it just `till warranty has passed.

And the app must write to internal energy-independent memory to be able to save the settings into the drive.

Just stick to the public standards, please - there is a standard ATA or SMART command to set the idle timer. SAMSUNG did it and are better in this area.
