Garuda KDE Dragonized HDD spinning constantly and not auto sleeping as configured in gnome-disks

Hi, as proposed in the title, I want my HDD to stop spinning after 10minutes of not using it. So I configured my HDD via gnome-disks (used to that from my times with Linux Mint, didnt see a reason to search for another program to do what i do with gnome disks so yea) to auto-sleep or stop spinning however youll call it after 10min of inactivity. I literally sat in front of my pc, without having any program open and just waited for my hdd to turn off. It didnt.
I didnt find any useful information in my system or the internet, probably because I dont really know what Im looking for.
Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!

Not surprised Gnome Disks doesn't affect behavior in KDE.

Maybe this is what you need? hdparm - ArchWiki

sadly both didnt work

Why do you have gnome-disks when running KDE, gnome is another DE and KDE is another DE.

Read new/edit post #1. Me too, I use it since Mint times in all DE's I work with.

is there anything comparable to gnome disks by KDE?
