USB 3.0 phd doesn't sleep

I recently bought a new Win8 laptop.  My USB 3.0 Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex 1tb portable hard disk used to go to sleep after a short time of no activity when connected to my previous Win7 laptop.  With my new laptop though it never goes to sleep (the light stays on all the time and the disk is spinning).  Is there something I need to do to allow it to go to sleep?

By the way, I have Windows indexing turned off for the phd and I have MSE configured to not check the phd.
