[clug] Sleepy USB drive

I've got two of these that I've been using as hot and cold backup
drives for a long time, never had any *other* problems. Although up
until about two months ago I had them on a power board that would
power off when the machine was asleep and I think the regular power
cycling was keeping them in order.

They work when they're not sleeping (as in I can mount and read from
them). I just can't put them to sleep after the machine has been
restored from sleep while they were on.
