    Unhappy HDD won't sleep, 42PFL6678

    Hi there!
    I found that after I switch off the TV, the external HDD is not going to sleep mode. The strange things that RARELLY without obvious reasons, it goes to sleep. But most often it stays rotating. With this, I found that if to press buttons on the remote, the TV react on it by sound (sound on button is on). The firmware is the latest.
    I was trying to switch off any WiFi options assuming that notebooks on the network prevent the TV to go off completely but nothing happened. Actually, when I first time set to OFF number of WiFi options and press OFF button on the remote, I found that:
    - the TV went to off state not immidiatelly, but with the delay
    - the HDD went to sleep also (I was happy I Found the solution!)
    - no sounds were while pressing the remote buttons
    - when ON, the PHILIPS was displayed on the screen for the seconds
    But just after that I off the TV again and things turned back - HDD never sleep, buttons produce sounds...
    Any suggestions???

    Great! Thank you! Now it works. One remark - even the delay to hold "fast wakeup" mode is set to OFF the TV stays in "fast" mode for 3 minutes.... But after that it goes off and HDD also goes off...
