Plex prevents HDD spin-down. How to troubleshoot?

TOMillrTOMillr Posts: 153Members, Plex Pass, TunerTester Plex Pass

I've just installed an Intel x64 build for the first time on my Qnap NAS. Problem is, Plex now seems to prevent my WD Red HDDs from properly entering into standby.

As of yet, the Plex sever is not connected to any clients, remote access, DLNA and scheduled tasks are disabled. So why does Plex keep my NAS from properly going to sleep?

What's the best way to get this sorted out? Don't like the idea of having the HDDs running 24/7 and consuming power...
