You can disable them in bios but the HDDs would still be powered. Real on/off is not possible.

Open the case and unplug the  power cables, then the drives are off. Other then that you would have to modify any cables to add a switch externally to remove the power so they won't run. Another solution is to buy a separate Drive hub that you can plug the drives into the hub and connect via a USB port. Keep the drives in static bags and away from any magnetic materials.

You can also set up your drive in BIOS to be hot swapped, which means you can install and remove while PC is running.
