I would like the opposite of what an earlier OP wants. I'd like my
external drive to sleep when the computer sleeps, I guess mostly so
the drive won't wear out.  Is this now standard with external drives
or should the advertising mention it if it's true?

When I bought an external drive for a friend, most of them didn't say
one way or the other.
