Specs: Windows 7
I have 2 hard drives on my PC
1. SATA - with win 7 setup on it
2 IDE - for general storage.

The issue is that 2nd drive turns off if PC is left idle for a while and is not detected again even from hard disk management tool.
I have to restart PC so that this 2nd drive can be accessed.

I have turned off hard disk power management to 0 mins

Any suggestion on how to bring this drive back without restarting PC?

Instead of setting to 0 minutes set to Disabled. If you are referring to the setting I think you are you are instructing the computer to shut down your drive immediately. The only thing that keeps it working at all is activity.
