Enhance 'Safely Remove' to spin-down and power-off usb HDDs
'Safely remove' should (as far as possible) allow for genuine safe removal of all media.
Under certain other OSs, the 'safely remove' option on usb devices will...
1/ On usb pen drive with a power/activity led, switch it off (trivial nicety, but reassuring).
2/ On usb HDDs, spin down the disk and power off. This seems more important.
There is some discussion about this, for example,
http://elliotli.blogspot.com/2009/01/safely-remove-usb-hard-drive-in-linux.html I know that the latest version of Ubuntu does this and there is a script offered in the above link.
However, the script, as it stands and run on my installation of OpenSUSE, does not seem to work (in the same way as WinXP or Ubuntu, anyway - my WD600D036 disk does not power off) despite the positive messages in verbose mode. Perhaps this is the CONFIG_USB_SUSPEND option mentioned?
