Would it be possible to make the USB3-SATA-UASP1 follow the Windows power profile settings for hard disk spin down instead of using an internal timer? This would be the best option, if possible.
Alternatively, could a custom firmware based on the latest revision be released to disable it? I know that the previous firmware revision 121026910000 avoided drive sleep, but I’d rather stay on 130107917d00 for the better large drive advanced formatting support, since I own 3TB and 4TB drives.
Overall I’m quite happy with this lay-flat dock, and I’m glad I waited for it to come back in stock on Amazon. The ASMedia chipset’s performance is superior to ones in other USB 3.0 docks that I own.
