    IThis external HD can be left on all the time without worry, as after about 10 minutes it will spin down and go into sleep mode. Any activity where as the drive is being accessed will wake it from sleep. However, if you did want to turn it off, I would suggest unplugging it first via USB and then unplugging the power.
