I just did an upgrade from 8.10 to 9.04 and have a weird new problem. I have a few external drive docks, the kind where you drop a regular SATA drive in vertically, and usually hdparm -y the device before removing it. This worked fine before I upgraded but now the drive will wake immediately after I manually sleep it.

The weird part: If I wait for the five minute standby timeout the drive sleeps and stays asleep. It only immediately awakens when I manually sleep it. Any ideas?

Thanks!
