Problem with external HDD support after latest system update

When external HDD support rolled out with the June update, my HDD would remain on indefinitely unless the Xbox was completely powered down. With the July update, they added an option to power off external storage when the Xbox was turned off.

Since I like being able download updates and such when the system is in standby, I unchecked this option. However, when my Xbox is in standby mode my external hard drive will start to power up and then shut off and just keep doing this over and over again. It will continue doing this until I wake up my Xbox from standby mode and then it works fine.

For reference, it's the same Seagate 4TB model that Major Nelson said they used making the video showing off the feature.
