Truly a puzzle. My NAS . . .
Excerpt from `/var/log/user.log` Nov 1 06:39:23 localhost logger: Enter standby Nov 1 17:02:23 localhost logger: exit standby after 37380 Nov 1 17:23:10 localhost logger: Enter standby Nov 1 17:24:11 localhost logger: exit standby after 61 Nov 1 17:35:21 localhost logger: Enter standby Nov 1 17:44:49 localhost logger: exit standby after 568 Nov 1 17:55:53 localhost logger: Enter standby Nov 1 18:25:43 localhost logger: exit standby after 1790 Nov 1 18:36:47 localhost logger: Enter standby Nov 1 23:18:39 localhost logger: exit standby after 16912
You sure you don't have any other deviced on your network that's interacting with your MyBook Live to cause it not to sleep?

A friend of mine had the same issue with a Verbatim Mediashare, which was fixed when he port forwarded his NAS in the router settings. I don't know if it will help here though.

My MBL is sleeping now like a charm ... must have been the pics like discussed earlier in the thread. But I still have iTunes, remote access and Twonky disabled. I'm going to try enabling them one at a time and see what happens.

from my experience if there's Remote Access enabled, MBL doesn't sleep. It could be caused by 300 GB of photos on it. Have no clue how long it takes to process it. It would be worthy to give it a try to enable Remote Access if there's no data/very few of data.

See my posting of 26 Oct 2011. My MBL 3 TB is running the latest F/W (02.03.01-024 of 25 Oct 2011) and it will not reliably go into sleep mode (standby). I have never added ANY files to it. Media, ftp and remote access are all disabled and the browser is not accessing the DashBoard. With standby set for 10 minutes the drive will still not sleep for longer than 61 seconds at 10 minute intervals. The 61 seconds is the period that the Blue LED is on. The actual drive spindown period (as determined by listening to the drive) is much shorter - on the order of 1 or 2 seconds. The drive was received with F/W 02.01.06-026 installed and it did not sleep as received. It did not sleep after update to F/W 02.02.02-020 that supposedly fixed the standby problem. It still does not sleep with the latest F/W (02.03.01-024) but I was not expecting that this would fix the problem as that F/W release was advertised as a security fix. I have not had any reply from WD staff as to whether they are still actively looking into this problem. I hope that they are still working on this problem as I consider the drive unusable while this problem still exists.

There is no difference if I disconnect the MBL from the router (an SMCD3GN). The drive still refuses to go into sleep/standby mode except as previously reported (for 61 seconds (1-2 seconds actual) every 10 minutes). I assume that this implies that whatever is preventing it from sleep/standby is strictly an internal process.

I'm running WinXP SP3. However I don't think that makes any difference as the MBL 3TB will not sleep/standby even if it is the only device connected to the router - all with no remote access, media or ftp enabled. In fact the MBL won't go to sleep/standby even if it is not connected to the router. i.e. when it's not connected to anything.

I've got the same problem like William with my book live 1To. I've got the last firmware 02.03.01 - 024 and there is no stand-by:
