"This means that when your computer enters the Sleep state, that device doesn't sleep, so that it will keep on drawing power. For a laptop this means that battery life is shortened even if you put it into Sleep.

This might be a driver problem, where the driver simply does not implement the Sleep state. It can also be the power management option in the Drive Manager for this device."
