Default How to turn drives off after a period of time?

I can't seem to find this. I have an app that checks a web page every minute, saves a copy when it changes and faxes it somewhere. Sometimes it goes a whole day without doing anything so it's a waste to have the hard drives spinning. How can I turn the drives off after so many minutes of inactivity and have them spin up when my script tries to save to it?
