Is there any way to not have external hd on when in standby?

...besides obviously unplugging it. I looked in settings but can't find a way to turn it off in standbye.
I have the wd 1tb touro. Will it significantly shorten the had life if it's on all the time?

I wondered this to, I am probably going to just turn instant on off. Other thought is it's not in use beyond being plugged in so isn't it just like a pc HD in standby all the time?

There is an option in the Startup settings I believe.
