First, a big thank you - there is nothing else like revosleep.
There are disks I use only as the dumps and I prefer to have them off most of the time. Yhis is why I need revosleep.
But I would suggest some important improvements.

From the nature of its purpose I'd say users will want to sleep disk mostly automatically, silently after startup. That's why it should support commandline or at least parameters.
There should be an option to act absolutely silently and seamlessly, not to display the gui and to terminate itself after disks are slept.
Then it would be possible to have icons and/or shortcuts defined to sleep and wake up disks with no app in memory and toolbar. THAT WOULD BE GREAT.

By the way: I know it goes like "sleep drives: ... go! stop!"
But it is a bit confusing to stop drives with a go! button and wake them up with a stop! button Smilie)

Thank you

STOP --- WAKE UP!

It is a matter of personal taste for ergonomics. But ask an average user if he feels natural to start his disk by pressing STOP and stopping his disk by pressing GO. Please, don't explain it to me, I know how it is meant, (actually stopping vs. activating the sleep mode).

Sleep! and Wake Up! would be generally better.

Just wanted to give Revolver some user's observation Smilie

put it to "autostart". revosleep support automatically, silently behavior, no gui is shown!
but for other kinds of reasons command line and parameters are required ... so this feature will come Winken

revosleep have to run in memory all the time ... otherwise you wouldnt be able to activate (or stop ^^ hrr hrr) your disks. More specifically you couldnt specify single disks for wake up. (because the driver is removed)

therefore you can select only one button all the time ^^ .... but u are right. The notations are still prototype like.
