I left it on overnight, no computers accessing it. Never went to sleep. I justr tried updating to the newest firmware.. still haven't seen it sleep yet. The power saving option is selected. What gives?

I seem to have the same problem with the NAS220 I just bought. I have connected it to the network (router), and configured it from one of my computers - nothing special, and the drive is still empty. Part of the configuration was to enable power save mode. I then saved this and rebooted it. I had also told it to check for firmware updates, and it said it was current.
After disconnecting it from the router and leaving it overnight, the fan and (I think but can't prove) hard drives are still spinning (it makes noise in a quiet sort of way). The front "Seagate" logo light is on, as well as the left hand blue light. I am guessing this drive is not in standby.
Any ideas / help / additional tests for this. I really don't want my drive spinning 24/7 for a variety of reasons, and our expected use is episodic and sparse.
