I'm trying to use your script which fits my use case perfectly. Sadly, the drives are spinning up from a few seconds to no more than a minute after spinning down.
can you please provide a screenshot of the disk configurations that are part of the affected pool? Please make sure that "HDD Standby" is set to "Always On", since it would interfere with the script otherwise. See: https://github.com/ngandrass/freenas-spindown-timer#configure-disk-standby-settings
Where do you have the spindown script placed? If it is located inside the pool it could result in spinning up the associated disks.
Is it furthermore possible that any of your services access the pool (Samba/NFS/Virtual Machines/...)? Or maybe your share is still mounted on some client that periodically performs reads?
I hope we can quickly fix your issue :)
