hey guys, how r u doin? I have this 3.5" IDE enclosure, and it works great, I mean I love the idea of enclosures ( not the power feeding thing :), btw can't I just insert a chargable battery to feed the power when I am unable to find an electricity block), anyway my question is, when I finish the usage of the enclosure I safely remove it when using Windows or umount when working with Linux, and after that I got confused whether to turn it off or no?

when I turn it off, the HDD suddenly stop spinning as if power failure not as when it was an internal and normally shuted down the pc.

So is it ok to turn it off the way I've just said???
