Well, that's interesting, about making sure it's stopped. I've asked here
a month or two ago, and got no responses: my manager has me using
pmount/pumount to mount the hard drives I'm putting in the eSATA drive bay
for offline backups. Formerly, I used mount/umount, and when I umounted
it, and walked downstairs, mostly, esp the green drives, were spun down. I
pumount... and *nothing* spins down. They stay spinning, which is obvious,
as I can feel the gyroscopic action as I pop them out immediately after
hitting the button to turn off the power to the drive.

That box is running CentOS 7.
