Short:        Reboot-Spindown Script
Author:       Amigo1
Uploader:     Amigo1
Type:         util/shell
Version:      1.0
Architecture: m68k-amigaos; ppc-amigaos
Replaces:     Reboot-Spindown Script
Requires:     idetool, reboot

Just 2 small scripts to reboot the System or spindown/sleep the Harddrives.

The "Stop-Script" is preset to spin down my two drives connected to a sii0680ide

controller in my AmigaONE.

sii0680ide.device 0  (means harddrive 0/Master) 3 (means put the HardDrive to
sii0680ide.device 1  (means harddrive 1/Slave)	5 (means stop the Harddrive)

read the documentation which comes with OS4 about "IDETool" for more deep
about your Harddrives and the possible settings.

1) Unpack the Archive to RAM:
2) If needed edit the "Stop-Script" with NotePad or the editor of your choice.
   The strings which need to be changed are between square brakets in the
	ram:idetool -p [sii0680ide.device 0] 3
	ram:idetool -p [sii0680ide.device 1] 3
	and few rows below in the same script

	ram:idetool -p [sii0680ide.device 0] 5
	ram:idetool -p [sii0680ide.device 1] 5

   - Delete or comment out one string if you have just one HardDrive

   If you don't have a clue about the settings, read on for a little help:
    - start  "Media Toolbox" either by double-clicking on it's icon in
      or by selecting "Execute command..." (shorcut is Right-Amiga E) in
      menu, and typing "Media Toolbox" _with_quotes_(!), then press <Enter>
    - Media Toolbox should present itself with a window asking about the device
      use, select the device your HDs are connected to, and 
    - memorise the name of the device, it could be sii0680ide.device,
      sii3114ide.device or sii3512ide.device.
    - once you have selected the right one, press "Start"
      Now you will see a list with all the Drives connected to that device.

    - look at the column titled "ID, LUN" and write down the ID of the drives
you want 
      to switch

   let's say you choice was "sii3112ide.device" and there is only one HardDrive,
   you should edit the "Stop-Script" as follows:
      RAM:IDETool -p sii0680ide.device 0 3 (this line puts the HD to sleep)
      RAM:IDETool -p sii3112ide.device 0 3
    - delete or comment out by putting a Semicolon to
      ;RAM:IDETool -p sii0680ide.device 1 3

    - and accordingly the same 6 rows below
      ram:idetool -p sii0680ide.device 0 5 (this line Stops the HD)
      RAM:IDETool -p sii3112ide.device 0 5

    - delete or comment out
      RAM:IDETool -p sii0680ide.device 1 5

3) Copy both scripts to S:Shell/ or S: using Workbench or by issuing the
   command in a Shell: (copy&paste, then press enter)
   COPY RAM:Reboot-Spindown-Script/~(#?.readme) TO S:Shell/ CLONE
4) If you like add the "Reboot Script" to your AmiDock

Added to AmiDock the Reboot script gives you handy button to Reboot or Halt your

Once you click on it a pretty much self-explaing Requester will pop up.

"Sleep" just does that, puts the HardDrives to sleep and they will wake up again
if you 
double click on their icon.

*************************************   WARNING  
 Should you select "STOP System" a second Warning Requester opens, by clicking
"STOP" here you will have to perform a HARD-Reset to spind the Harddrives back

Have fun!
