I use my External HD only a few times a week so it's not a big deal to me (But just for future ref. You really only need to power cycle the HDD, not the 622...)
Hope this helps...

What brand and model of drive is it?
It is a Seagate 750 GB FreeAgent Pro.
Thanks again for all replies. I'll keep searching for a solution. I see that others have had similar problems, but I haven't found any solutions yet. If I find one, I will post it here for the benefit of others. Tech support has not been helpful.

Interesingly, I have Maxtor EHD's, and even when they go to sleep the receiver wakes them up fine, and they work. Not sure why this isn't the case for all drives, but it's not.
I originally bought a Seagate FreeAgent due to my good experiences with Seagate drives, but it was only trouble on my DVR. Half the time I plugged it in it wouldn't recognize it properly, and it just generally didn't work very well. The Maxtor drives work flawlessly, and were cheaper, so I have a few of those now.
How do you use the utility if the drive is connected to the 721?
I think you're supposed to attach the drive to a PC first, before you use it on the DVR, to deactivate the sleep feature.
