I’m a sufferer of the well-known noise problem with the unit in standby, so I’m using the forced, 5-sec power-button shut down. I have two questions:
-if I leave it on standby, is it my idea or the HDD never stops spinning? I can feel a vibration, and I don’t think it comes from the fan. If it’s the HDD, then I guess it’s not that good for it, is it?
-if I shut it down by pressing the off button for five seconds, it feels like a forces shut-down which, again, is not that good for the HDD and its data. Often I find trash on it coming (presumably) from a disk-cleaning and checking routine… Is it so?
