Here you can configure settings for the LED indicators, buzzer, hard disk hibernation, power usage, fan speed and LCD display panel.

  • System: Here you can choose to disable any of the LED indicators to save power. By selecting "night mode", only the system power LED indicator will be enabled. It will flash an orange light every 10 seconds. "Night mode scheduling" will allow you to configure the start time and duration of night mode. You can also configure settings for the buzzer and reset button here.
  • Disk Hibernation: Your hard disks will enter hibernation mode when left idle for the period of time specified here. Once in hibernation, the hard disk LED indicator on the front of the disk tray will flash once every 10 seconds to indicate that the disk is hibernating. If an access error is detected on a hard disk, the LED indicator on the front of the disk tray will be lit red.
  • Power: Here you can manage power usage settings such as Wake On LAN (WOL), Wake On WAN (WOW) and power scheduling.
