Unmountig the external HD

Hi!
I'm backing up "all files" with the option that SD repairs permitions, copies files, makes bootable and at the end - sleeps my Powerbook. Works like a charm, when I get up in the morning, both my Powerbook - and the external iOmega tripple int. HD are sleeping.

Maybe my question isn't SD related at all but please allow me to ask - why won't my external HD go to sleep otherwise? With this I mean stop spinning and that the fan stops.

If I click on the little "eject" arrow in the Finder it unmounts the iOmega but it won't stop spinning unless I dissconnect the FW cable. When I close the lid of my Powerbook it goes to sleep and so does the external drive - then they wake up togehter when I open it again.

The Spotlight indexing of my external drive is dissabled at all times.

Thank you

No idea, homesick. Something about the way they've handled this stuff in their firmware, no doubt...

OK, I guess I'll have to live with it, manualy dissconnecting the iOmega when done. Actualy, I'm using it only to do the backup and I'll maybe edit some DV's and WAVs.
Thank you

Please feel free to delete this thread, don't think it's got uch to do with the SD forum...
