Works perfectly. I use this for a bar/club dj computer. I have 3 different djs that bring their own external drive and this keeps them awake. Some of the music is played from the internal HD and when they go back to a song from the external, the application has 5-6 second freeze. But NOT with NoSleepHD!!! Thank you for this. I have this application on auto run at login.

Very GOOD! Thank you very much! I hope the next ver. have the possibility to go in tray bar automatically. But it is a very good tool yet now.

Prevent external hard drive from shutting down in Windows 10! I know this is old software, but it still works great. If the program crashes or does not run in Windows 10, you must right click the file NoSleepHDv2.0.exe and select "Run as administrator". For me, that made it work great! I watch movies on my external drive, if I pause for more than 10 minutes, the movie freezes when the drive shuts down, this has fixed that problem! Thank you to Ashutosh Agarwal for developing this simple fix! : )
