Front Button Functions

The front LED is also a button. Consult the following table for front button functions. Note that Passive Mode means that the product is on but the disks are idle. This allows you, for example, to daisy chain compatible Thunderbolt devices to a host computer via the LaCie 5big, without causing the 5big's disks to spin up. This lets you control energy usage and limit unnecessary wear and tear on the 5big's disks.
