Low power LED behavior

Rugged RAID Shuttle is designed to operate using power from the USB connection to your computer. If the connection isn’t delivering enough power for Rugged RAID Shuttle to operate, the low power LED behind the protective casing blinks.

If the low power LED light is blinking, connect the power cable to Rugged RAID Shuttle and then connect the power supply to a live power outlet.

Power-saving mode

Your Rugged RAID Shuttle can conserve energy by entering power-saving mode. Managed by your computer, power-saving mode can extend the life of the hard drives by sparing them from working during extended periods of inactivity.

Operating system

You can initiate power-saving mode on your computer by performing one of the following:

  • Placing the host computer in sleep mode.
  • macOS—Go to System Preferences > Energy Saver to enable sleep mode for hard drives.
  • Windows—Go to Control Panel > Hardware > Power Options > Choose a power plan > Change advanced power settings. Click on Hard disk and Turn off the hard disk after. Choose the time to spin down USB hard drives.

To exit power-saving mode, review the table below:
