How to really shut down a USB peripherial on eject

#1
Hi all,

I'd like to know how to really shut down a USB peripherial when I press eject. When you do this on Windows XP, your hardrive for instance will power down, whereas it stays on with Windows Seven, despite the safety message "the device can now be safely removed"

I've installed the RC on two different computers and I have the same problem with various external hard drives, USB keys, phones etc.

Any idea ?

Thanks a lot !

Fred

Perfectly normal behavior even with the RTM.
