utorrent wakes up my NAS drive


Recommended Posts

When uTorrent is running, it keeps waking up my NAS drive from power save. I'm not sure why this happens but if I close uTorrent, the drive sleeps (power saves) properly. Is there there some kind of broadcast that uTorrent does that I can disable?

The NAS drive is a QNAP TS-109. I have disabled nearly all the services on it (web server, bittorrent client, FTP, etc) and left only the Twonky media server enabled.

Any ideas would be much appreciated.

thanks for your help, guys.

DreadWhiteknight, i haven't got any drives mapped other than C:

moogly, I've just tried disabling both UPnP/NAT-PMP and it seems to have cured the problem. I'm not sure if there is a downside other than not being able to use automatic port mapping.

I will monitor this today and if the problem resurfaces, i'll update this thread.
