* From the T10 Reflector (t10 at, posted by:
* Ralph Weber <roweber at>
I was reviewing the CAP discussion of the T10 Reflector posting
replicated below and noticed an oversight in the discussion.
A significant part of the concerns raised are related to the
Sleep power condition and its definition in T10 standards other
than MMC.
SPC-x has not had any references to the Sleep power condition
in MMC or anywhere else (except for an additional sense code
definition) since SPC-2. The same is true for SBC-x and SAM-x,
where Sleep was removed from the specs after SBC and SAM-2.
Although earlier versions of all three standards contain such
references, they are published standards which should not be
amended because of this. Numerous later versions of SAM-x,
SPC-x, and SBC-x display the obsolete nature of Sleep in
these technologies.
As a footnote, attempts to restore the Sleep power condition
to these standards were set aside, at least temporarily, by
a 4:11 straw poll in the SAS Protocol working group. See:
All the best,
