'smartctl -n standby' wakes up drive

Reported by: chrfranke Owned by: somebody
Priority: major Milestone: Release 5.39.1
Component: all Version: 5.38
Keywords: linux Cc:


If 'smartctl -n standby' is used on Linux, smartctl properly detects the standby mode and exits, but the drive spins up then.

If 'hdparm -C' is used instead, the drive does not spin up.
