Yes, I had this problem when I had multiple HD's plugged in, one in the dock, one on a cable....running f/w 1.26.... I upgraded to 1.27 and plugged in my AC adapter to the wall instead of my power-strip, and the problem has not happened since.
Not sure if it was a firmware bug, but I had numerous other problems related to "flaky" behavior of the FAT+ which have all gone away ever since I plugged it into the wall directly and re-seated the crazy "prong/plug adapter" on the transformer. I'm guessing the hardware does not have much low-voltage margin and was just running haywire when I short-changed it the power it needed via crummy contact on the adapter and having about 8 other things plugged into my power strip.
...just my experience...

Is it possible that you've used another remote control that accidently turns on your FAT+?
My FIOS remote does just that, so I "store" the FAT+ remote in front of it so it blocks the IR receiver.
I hope this helps.

Thanks for the idea but no one is using the FAT+ or any other remote. The FAT+ is running "stand-alone" connected to a monitor with no other media hardware nearby. The red remote LED on the FAT+ does not illuminate when it comes back on. I have disconnected the monitor and all USB devices including the FreeAgent drive and have updated the firmware to 1.27.

Is your FAT+ connected to a network? if connected, it might be a wake-up on LAN behavior. If not connected,
you might want to check the settings to see if both wired and wireless are disable.
