Performance issue with other drives (d:) from my SSD

I have my OS installed on my 80 gig SSD using built in windows 7 drivers. I have homed everything to D: which is a raid 0 running on my onboard intel chipset.

It seems that the disk itself seems to hibernate or something making the first request to it painfully slow (i can hear it spin up and watch the directories render).

There must be an a known setting for this. Any thoughts?

I just set it to never shut down. We will see...

Anyone have any ideas here? It's like accessing any of my other drives takes a while like they are all asleep. onboard raid 0 (though i am not using Intel drivers -- just hte built in windows), external usb drives, etc.
