I am interested in a DVD drive (VLU2SD24XLS) from OWC. Under "Specs" it says the following:

Requires disabling of hard disk sleep in Mac Pro Systems to prevent drive from disappearing during sleep. To disable hard disk sleep go to the Apple --->System Preferences ---> Energy Saver and uncheck "Put the hard disk(s) to sleep when possible."

Since I have a mini, does this matter to me? Also, as far as I know, even if set the HD to never sleep, it will go to sleep after a couple hours of inactivity.

When they say the drive will disappear if the HD goes to sleep, what's the remedy?

I am grateful for any comments and advice.

I'm not sure but the folks at OWC will know for sure, I've found them very helpful. I'd give them a quick call.
