My 3tb My Book Live will no longer sleep after the last two 2.x firmware updates. Nothing else has changed on my system and I have not made any major changes to the drive content. The green light will stop flickering when nothing is happening, but it will no longer spin down and go the the blue light.
I have no photos except for some album art associated with music files. I have remote access turned off. I have ensured that all devices that might be using the drive or contacting it are turned off. I am not running through a switch, just directly to the router.
This is definitely a problem created by the new firmware. My drive slept just fine until I installed 2.x firmware. It cannot be the problem with processing photos because I do not have any, to speak of. It cannot be the remote access problem because it is not turned on. And yes, I do have it set to sleep after 10 minutes in settings, which I turned off and back on again to see if it would make a difference–did not.
I think there are enough people reporting sleep problems with 2.x that had no problem with 1.x firmware to assume that it is, indeed, a problem with 2.x.
