do you have such a function or an equivalent for Seagate HDD ?

You'll notice it by the fact that the HD will have to spin up again. (Best noticed when you try to access the drive after leaving it inactive for 10+ minutes). There'll be a minor delay because of the spin-up time, and then it'll work smoothly again.

I have a WD Green myself as external drive, and this annoying ass feature actually killed the drive that way by constantly turning itself off and having to spin up each time lol.

You can't.

The only way to prevent it is basically forcing it to not go idle. Some people made some tools to constantly write a very small .txt file to the drive every 5 minutes, that basically keeps it active all the time.

WD made a bootable ISO that you can use to change te idle time.
