Now I'm looking for a desktop PC. Maybe this helps?

Humm, Hold on a bit... I will check Documentation..
There are a Feature to turn changes persistent, it works for only a subset of things, maybe I forgot that..
I will look into it, and you can try it then..
What a moment  Shy..



EDIT: 
For what I saw you already have:
'SATA Software Settings Preservation [Enabled]'

But I detected that you have some things that I don't, and I have another ones that you don't..  Confused

If you look into my current temperature:
' Current Temperature (C): 26'

You will notice that its **a lot lower** than in your disks, ( your luck is that you own Seagate disks...they support higher temps than others.. maxout at 70C, for the case.. )
If I recall it correctly your higher temp are around 50C, that starts to be uncomfortable high..

Mines maxout at around ~30C ..

I Remember of one thing..
Try to set values with the ISCSI handler instead:
Identify the handler:
Code:
openSeaChest_Basics --scan --scanFlags sgtosd --device /dev/sda

And then instead of using '/dev/sda' use '/dev/sg0'( probably this will not work, because even using '/dev/sda' Seagate uses underneath the SCSI protocol over ATA.. its only a shot.. ).



Your problem, probably has to do with the fact that, your Sata Adapter, doesn't Acknowledge the power cycle you do when rebooting the Operating system..
Try configuring , then shutting down, remove the disk, wait a bit insert it again, and then boot and check..

If that doesn't work, you probably need a native Sata port around..  Sad

Hello tuxd3v,
I also thought about why the temperature is so high. My second hard drive (4TB) also has a high temperature about 32c in sleep mode, in operation I try to cool it with fan always. (no comparison to your 26c). what does it relate to?????????

no difference, have already tried that post #9

most likely, I'm looking for a desktop PC. my last chance. I do not understand the problem, why developer (Seagate) can not make that easier.

Thank you for your help and patience with me!

Hello Neo2018,
You welcome  Shy

I use a Fan to vent the disks, and I have configured the disks for power saving( They are majority of time in APM mode 1, Because when you configure them in APM 127, after some time without activity they enter in APM mode 1, also known as StandBy..only the Controller board is in part activated,..this saves energy, the disks, and lower the temps.. ) ..

The Power Balance Feature..
IronWolfs ship with settings in 'Performance' Mode.. So we need to adjust for our own needs the power settings..


Load/Unload,
You posted the 'Power Cycles' of your disks..
And that is  a preoccupation, because you have ~3000-5000 'Power Cycles'( SMART attribute 12, the Load/Unload is SMART attribute 193 ).

That tells me that, your disks fail to start a lot of times due to not sufficient power budget..
Probably because they are in 'Performance' Mode..

Best Regards,

Do you also use the ROCKPro64 Metal Desktop / NAS Casing or something else?

OK. I understood that.
Please tell me the right command to configure on for example 128 or 192. Is that correct? --> ./openSeaChest_PowerControl --device /dev/sda --setAPMLevel 128

And the right command to configure spindown time. I want to set 30 to 60 minutes. Is that possible?

I'll test that with for blockid in {a..d};do smartctl --attributes /dev/sd${blockid}|grep -E "^ 12|^193"; done for a week.
