NSA542 presales: selective sleep, fan control

Is it possible for NSA542 to selectively sleep disks? Like when 2 drives are installed (single, no RAID), there is a download in progress, but data on the 2nd disk are not involved?
Second question - is it possible to regulate fan speed?

    The daemon hdidle is responsible for disk sleep. So if one of the disks is really not accessed, it will sleep. About the fan, it's automatically regulated, and custom control is not supported by the firmware, but yes, it can be done.

    Thanks for the details.  I assume that the speed control trick needs to be redone after each boot/wake from sleep, right?

    Yes indeed.
