I and several people are reporting that the Seagate Momentus XT 750GB does not spinning down at idle under MacOS Lion.  Do any of you have this drive and have similar problems?  This is a notebook hard drive and I have it in my MacBook Pro (late 2009), but others report this in other models, like the late 2011 and mid 2010 MacBook Pros.


The drive will only spin down when I force the laptop to sleep by choosing Sleep under the Apple menu or closing the lid.  However it does not spin down under normal use, nor does it seem to let the laptop go to sleep.


This seems like it might be an OS problem.  Are others experiencing this?  I am also looking for answers from Seagate, via their tech support and also their forums here

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.3), seagate momentus XT 750GB
