I have a usb powered HDD with a Y-Split cable but x-key sees it fine without having to ply the split in... Not that I use that drive... However, if I used a different cable (non y-Split the hDD does not power up... Very strange... as I said I never plugged both end of the Y-Split in...
My point it - either try another cable or get another drive that does not need a y-splt. My external powered HDD shuts down when the xkey shuts down and that happens at power off. Alternatively you - always unplug the HDD from the 360 after use... Not much else can be done of a simplistic nature
Maybe a firmware will come out to turn off the LCD when powering off... But that still would not power down the HDD as far as I am aware
