Hello, I have a linkstation live and an intel iMac. When I use the auto setting the drive shuts down after about five minutes even when I am accessing it for backing up or whatever. Is there an easy fix?

Yes, send WOL pakets every 3 Minutes.
This is a small Python script you can use (copy the text into a file and name
it wol.sh so you can start it via command line):
#!/usr/bin/env python
import socket
import time
s=socket.socket(socket.AF_INET, socket.SOCK_DGRAM)
while 1:
   s.sendto('\xff'*6+'\x00\x24\xA5\x45\x69\x11'*16, ('', 9))
   print "Sent paket!"

Just replace the IP address ( with the IP address of your LS Live.

Btw. A LS Live was NEVER PowerPC based -> wrong forum.

Please do not use private mail (PN/M) to ask questions. Use the proper forum instead. (me)

RAID (no matter which level) never ever substitutes a backup. (me)
