I have a laptop set up for htpc on my lcdtv. However i have it foplded up & tucked away. sleep is fine on it with wake on usb enabled. My issue is my 8tb hdd enclusure which houses all my media. it remotely powers to standby when the pc shuts down. But it remains powered up when the laptop is in the sleep mode. I need a way to trick the hdd into standby with sleep or an htpc wireless keybord/mouse with remote power up/down would be awesome. any help ... Please? dont want to lose the mass of movies that took obviously way too long to by overtaxing the drive.

Can you give us the specifics of the enclosure you are using?
Is the laptop the only machine it can be connected too?
What OS version are you running?
