Sleep mode and hard drive setting time

Recommended Posts

Using systems default my  PC enters sleep mode after 30 minutes.  Also by default the hard drive setting time is 20 minutes.  To my limited knowledge I believed that when the computer enters in sleep mode the hard drive is turned off.  Should I change my sleeping mode  setting to 20 minutes?  What is the computer actually doing during the 10 minutes where the hard drive is off but the PC has not yet entered the sleep mode.  Thanks
