    Lets hope that isn't the case. I use smartd(smartmon) which removes sleeping drives automatically.

    Phoronix: Linux In 2020 Can Finally Provide Sane Monitoring Of SATA Drive Temperatures

    Here is another long overdue kernel change... For more than a decade there have been patches trying to get SATA/SCSI drive temperature monitoring working nicely within the Linux kernel but none of that work ever made it through for mainlining. That has left various user-space tools to provide the functionality, but in doing so that has required root access and not to mention the need to first install said utilities. Well, with Linux 5.6 in 2020, there is finally a proper drive temperature driver for disks and solid-state drives with temperature sensors...
