Are you unslung? If so, how many services are you running off
the drive? A running service like dropbear, for instance, can
keep the drive spinning all the time.
If you shut down all services, the drive will eventually spin
down. Note that the Linksys firmware doesn't have this issue,
since everything is in flash.
