Need to disable HDD spin down when unable external SWAP?

    A curious question. When I create SWAP partition on external removable hard drive, and active Swap, do I have to disable HDD auto spin down when idle?
    Will the spin down function cause swap not reachable and memory conflict?

    Edit: typo in subject, forgive me typing it on iPad. should be 'enable external swap'.

    No, idle means idle - it's at the block level, not the filesystem level. You probably won't spin down much, but it is what it is.
