I have Vista Ultimate 64, I have an external Hard Drive

how do I prevent it from shutting down it is causing
a lag when I try to write to it.



Check out the power options for the eSATA port. Microsoft has deemed
to automatically put "Allow Windows to shut the power..." option.

Also, you will need to contact the eSATA drive manufacturer and see
what are the options to set the power "save" features.
