Applications takes long time to open on Mac OSX 10.5, 10.6, 10.7 As HDD takes long time to wake up from sleep.

 
I have iMac & 2 External Hard Drives, one for Time Machine Backup which is powered by USB only but my 2nd External Hard drive takes lot of time to wake from sleep as it is powered by external electrical outlet & connected to mac by FireWire 800.

 
I found that opening any daily routine applications like iCal, Pages, Keynote or even saving file in Photoshop takes lot of time to finished the job…

 
So the solution is in Preferences’ Energy Saver Panel, Just unchecking the ‘Put the hard disk(s) to sleep when possible’ will prevent any hard drive attached to your mac going to sleep.

 

 
So Now, After unchecking the desired check box in Energy Saver Panel every applications opens more quickly & it smoothans the workflow on Mac…
