Why LinkStation scheduled Power management does not work?


To automatically put LinkStation to "sleep" mode when your PC goes off, set power switch on LinkStation to Auto mode.

NAS Navigator2 application should be installed on client PC to automatically fully power ("wake up") LinkStation when PC is back on.

The LinkStation can be manually configured to go into power-saving ("sleep") mode at regular intervals. In management Web UI Power Management/Sleep Timer, click [Modify Settings] to configure a sleep interval.


To save energy you can specify designated times to put the LinkStation into standby mode. In standby mode, the hard disk(s) and LEDs are turned off.

You can schedule up to three timers to manage your LinkStation power state at pre-determined times.

The LinkStation's power switch must be set to on for scheduled sleep mode to work.

To manually wake a LinkStation from sleep mode before its scheduled wakeup time, move the power switch to off, wait 30 seconds, then move the switch back to the on position.
