I'm considering putting together an Unraid server. I like its ability to expand the array, data protection for single disk failures, etc.


But it doesn't support S3 standby.


My question is:


Does Unraid have the ability to shutdown completely after a period of inactivity? I know it can spin down disks, etc. But I would only use this server to serve data during very limited periods during the day. Having the whole system shutdown and wake-on-lan ability would be the deciding factor for me whether or not to go ahead with the build.

WOL-capability is dependent on your mobo, not unRAID. Only the "shutdown on schedule" (and S3 Standby support) would be a sw feature.


I'd like to see this feature too, but it wasn't a big enough reason for me to wait. My new unRAID server idles at 44W when the drives have spun down--probably less when I get my new Antec EA-430 in a couple days. I'm okay with that for now.
