Disable External USB Hard Drive Spin Down? - Bwfan - 02-14-2015

Morning all.

I have a question regarding external USB drives and auto spin down. Is there any way to disable this in OpenElec so the USB drives stay online? I notice a good 15-20 second delay while the drives spin up after not being used after about a 1/2 hour.

thanks!
