BitTorrent Sync (btsync) will re-index all files every 10 minutes to look for new files to sync. After installing btsync on Raspberry Pi initially and then ending up running it on an Odroid-C1 my WD NAS never sleeps. The first 48 hours it was expected since it took all that time to index all the files. But now my NAS never sleeps. Since this is a backup solution I don't have the need for it to actually re-index every 10 minutes. If the Western Digital LiveBook Duo is left alone for 20 minutes it will spin down it's hard drives. So here is a quick guide on how to configure the re-index interval for btsync installed on an arm system. This is done on the system initially installed with the Raspberry Pi: BitTorrent Sync guide.
