I've tried changing Workgroup and setting master=no - but it didn't help.

I read in some forum that Hibernation was working better with the new firmware 598. Maybe I should give it a shot...

Unfortunately the new firmware did not improve the situation either. Only using a different workgroup helped.

DUMMY-workgroup:

Do I understand right, that some of you guys have no more spin-ups even when machines on the lan are active, when using a Dummy-workgroup? not even spinups when a win-machine on the lan is booting? ...no spinups even though you have syno-share mapped on win-machines as networkdrives?

I also use the workgroup "dummy" for some time and it has in deed helped somewhat against spinups, but there are still some spinups particularly always when a win-machine is booting in the lan. of course the win-lan-machine are in another workgroup than "dummy". my lan-machines have mapped some syno-shares as network drives.

can someone immagine what i coult try to avoid this.

cheers, mischaq

DHCP-setup?

btw: what is your opinion about spinups caused by ip-address renewals at the end of leasetime in a DHCP-setup?

You are right. When a computer is booting up the DS is still coming out of hibernation. However, I suppose this is probably a Windows feature as all the network shares are validated at start up.
For me it is much more important that the DS properly hibernates during the night even when I do not turn off all computers. And this is working if you put it into a different workgroup.

I've done a reinstall of Vista - and now it seems that all the "wake up" issues are gone. :o

When I resumed from standby on my old installation the Diskstation always did a spin up. It doesn't do that anymore.
When I've used it - it does hibernate after 10mins. and doesn't wake up again... I will of course test that part further!

Please note, that I do not have any mapped drives on to my diskstation. I just use a Internet shortcut to the IP of my diskstation. The diskstation has a dummy workgroup and I've applied the "master = no". Can't say if the last setting did anything though, as I haven't tested it without it.

I will try to map a drive and see what happens next.
