    Well you said it "standby" is that nothing works unless you set things up say wake up lan or whatever,if in Kazza I just leave it alone.
    Have you set things for whine down etc in Control Panel - Power Options ? I only set the H/driver then turn the monitor off before I go to bed.

    Well cable is lan and companies are on it too so they set up lan when they go home and if an email comes in it wakes it up to receive it,ie all this goes is save abit of money and as you have found out keeps the hard driver etc abit cooler.

    What do you mean by "extremely" hot and how do you know ?

    DON'T touch it next time OR if you are VERY concerned get a h/drive cooler.

    You've got a real problem if your HDD is getting that hot.

    Get yourself a copy of HDD Temperature Monitor and see what your readings really are.

    My HDD would barely even qualify as warm.
