[techtalk] put a drive to sleep...

hdparm seemed to be exactly what I was
looking for, but the -y (put in standby)
 -C (current power status) and -S (set
sleep-when-idle timeout) all give this error:

    Operation not permitted on a scsi drive.

Any more suggestions? I tried the newly-
learned 'apropos' looking for sleep or spin
or power (even 'down') and nothing apropriate
came up. Is it possible to setup up apmd to
shut down a drive at a specific time?
