Solved Hard drive and DVD RW Drive issue on Windows 8 RTM

So the same issues i had in Windows 8 Release Preview too and i was hoped to be fixed in Windows 8 RTM but still the same! So the issue about HDD is that i'm using two hard drives; one is Western Digital which is primary with Windows 8 installed on it and the other is Hitachi which i use it for data or recovery and so after installed Windows 8 after 20 minutes goes to sleep and then when i click on its partition which is currently "Local Disk D" i have to wait for a few seconds to get back it to normal but also when i click on Hitachi's partition after 20 minutes it freezes my system until it back it to normal, so this issue i didn't have before in Windows 7 it newer went to sleep but now in Windows 8 yes so that makes me very irritated and i don't know what to do and the other issue about DVD Drive which i had also in Release Preview but not in Consumer Preview is that after i restart Windows 8 for the first time after i get "Desktop" of installing process i can't see then the drive into "My Computer" it lost from there and to get it back i have to to "Command Promt" and to paste this: "reg.exe add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\atapi\Controller0" /f /v EnumDevice1 /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000001" and then it's ok but without doing that it will lost from Windows Explorer. So what exactly are these issues ? Is that becuase we still don't have any chipset drivers or what ? THANK YOU AND SORRY FOR MY POOR ENGLISH :)

Hi there
as RTM hasn't been officially released nobody can help you fix any problems on THAT system.

You CAN describe your experiences in using it but nobody is going to attempt to try and solve stuff on unofficial leaks and builds.
