[CentOS] drive to standby after idle timeout?

I'd like to to put the hard drives in standby mode during periods of
no activity. I'm just running a file server plus a couple small
things on a Qube 3 from home, although the web stuff will increase
it's still minimal.
On my NetBSD systems I can use atactl to do this via:
mount -u -o async,noatime,nodevmtime /
mount -u -o async,noatime /usr
atactl wd0 setidle 5
[wait a time]
# atactl wd0 checkpower
Current power status: Standby mode
I looked at smartctl but it doesn't look like I can set idle time
with it, just readout status and perform self-tests. Is there a way?
