Re: Disk Unmount

Are drives powered from the Pi or from their own supply? If the former they may not be getting enough power.

Re: dietpi auto power on/auto power off

The exceptions to this are Intel devices and the Ordoid XU4 can be woken up by RTC if you have the battery they sell - this isn't wake on LAN but wake on schedule - and poweroff can be done with cron.

Before I adpoted Docker I had to install different Python versions for different apps - and not all versions at the time were installable by apt-get so I had to complie one.

Re: Python upgrade

One way round this is to use Docker to run these apps - well worth investing the time in learning how it works. Then no worries over Python versions. It's available in dietpi-software but from then on you have to manually install what you want.

Re: Seagate USB 3.0 drive cooling fan not stopping

Long shot maybe but I have Seagate external I couldn't spin down, but plugging into a Windows Computer and running the Seagate Drive Settings app I could adjust spindown time. Maybe there's a fan option in there.

Re: USB HHD idles and does not "wake up"

Just an idea - plug the drive into a Windows computer and run the WD utility to ensure firmware is up to date ect, and adjust spin down settings.

I've done similar with a Seagate drive, I assume WD have a similar utility.
