I am running a computer in dos mode (booted from a floppy) and would like to know if there is a way to put the HD in a standby mode say after 5 min of inactivity? The computer is running 24/7/365 (in dos) and never uses the hard drive. I don't want to take the HD out since occasionally I will re boot into windows from the HD to do certain troubleshooting, but the vast majority of the time its running from the floppy so I would like to get the HD to go into standby mode so it won't ware out. Is there a place I can go in the setup mode to do this?

Thanks......

You might want to check your power management settings in the BIOS. I have never heard of any utilities that will put a drive to sleep in DOS.
