There is a setting that allows you to turn off the front panel LEDs, so no, the lights don't have to be on.spatel783 said:I don't mind leaving it on but damn...is the light ALWAYS going to be on? I just bought it and Im still treating it like my child..i just believe that leaving it on 24/7 will burn it out quicker.
And the unit will always be running unless you unplug it. It isn't something to worry about, it was designed that way. And with modern hard drives, the spinning up and down does more wear than running continuously.
