I have my BB modem/router mounted in the loft, to which I have no quick
easy access. On those rare occaisions I do desire to turn it off, I
have a remote control wireless 13A switch.
The router has a USB socket on it, which supports a 1Tb USB HDD. It
works and I have access to the HDD anywhere on my network, but I would
like to be able to not have it running all of the time. I could add a
second remote 13A switch, but might there be some way to have the HDD
start and stop itself from running only when accessed?
It is an older 1Tb USB Buffalo HDD..
