It can change - get this - via command line! - whether one of those loud disks will spin down and become perfectly silent when it's bee idle [or whether it won't] and after how many seconds it will do so. It can also simply spin it down right now, via command line. However figuring out the command line is painful, because the UI is like a jump and run adventure.
