saving your drive instead of electricity is much more economic.
all drives prefers running in stable environment - like being up 24h/day.
average drive takes <10Watts , so it's <90kWh/year.
in Poland it's about 30PLN/year, assuming your drive is down half time you
will save 15PLN/year which is about six US dollars :)
much less that increased chance of drive failure.
