At the moment on the My Passport Wireless the media indexer and transcoder runs every single time the MPW is powered up. With a drive that’s got a lot of media on it, it causes a problem. With the media I have on my MPW, with a charge of 100% when turned on the charge will drop to 90% at the point indexing completes.
Please introduce an option where the media indexing can be turned toggled off and on. So when I turn the MPW on, moment after it’s operating system and services complete loading, the drive can almost immediately go to sleep so as not to waste battery charge each time it’s turned on.
As it stands now, if I turn it on and allow indexing to complete (when the drive actually spins down and sleep), on about the 8th power-up the battery will end up getting fully discharged.
Not useful if I’ll be away from a charging point for an entire day.
