    I've had the same issue with a 2560p, although I'd rather describe it as annoyance then nightmare. It didn't cause any issues with windows for me, just that I had to hold down the power button nearly every time on shutdown. Either way thanks a lot for figuring out what the exact cause is and how to fix it. I didn't feel like cutting the small lead (and risking to damage something else while trying) and instead went ahead to isolate the sata connector itself. Cutting a thin piece of tape (transparent tesafilm in my case) and putting it over the connector pin works fine so far.

    Thanks for the tip! I just used a knife to pull the pin out of the board. Works great so far on my 8460p.

    holy crap you're the best dude took about 1 minute to do with a pocket knife... my 8560w wasnt shutting down either, and this page was the first hit on google luckily i decided to go here. i just got the tip of my 2.5 inch kershaw in between the connector and the pin, then slowly pulled the pin from the socket, and that connection snapped off once i got it all the way pulled out. good job man works like a charm now i thought my workstation was ate up !!!!

    Thanks for the tip, this solved my problem;

    I found another way to do it, you don't have to dismantle the caddy :p
    My caddy has a small white dip switch next to S-ATA connector; changed his position and now the problem is solved
    I saw some different models and some have the switch inside caddy, others outside (one of the margins) 220000011346730622_10018762_2_image.jpg 220000011346730622_10018762_3_image.jpg
