Default ST31000340AS... Any way to prevent it from sleeping

So few years ago I picked up this Maxtor external 1Tb hard drive. One day I managed to break the usb port on it so I decided to take it apart and use it as an internal drive. The only issue is that it seems to go to "sleep" and sometimes when Im in the middle of something and it boots up it freezes my computer so to speak for 10 seconds and is quite annoying. Is there an option where I can prevent it from going to sleep so this doesn't happen?

Thanks.
