FAQ

Q- What is the “Prevent HD clicking” option?

A- Some hard drives used in the A1 does some frequent clicking noise, due to [badly] aggressive power management that parks the HD heads whenever it’s possible, to reduce power usage and prevent potential damage from shocks. While this may be a good thing in a general case, when it occurs too frequently it dramatically reduce the lifespan of the drive and may be annoying due to the noise generated. This option almost disable the hard drive power management to prevent this clicks, thus preserving your ears and you drive’s lifespan at the cost of a little more power consumption. Activating this option is not recommended for the A1 models with SSD drives.



Q- Why the fan is stopped when I set it to slow mode?

A- Slow mode can’t be activated when the system temperature is under 37c, thus the fan is stopped until this threshold is reached, whatever your temperature settings for slow mode are.



Q- Why do I need to patch my acpiec.sys driver?

A- You don’t need to patch this file to make the program run correctly, however due to this chatty driver, some warnings are constantly written into a log file (due to the temperature polling) causing your hard drive to never spin down and consume power. If you own a SSD drive model, this may reduce its life span due to constant writing causing wear. That’s why it’s recommanded (and completely safe) to patch your acpiec.sys driver when asked. This operation can be completely reversed using the ‘unpatch’ button in the configuration dialog.
