If you've set all the options to always on, in the power management console, then there's only one place left to check.

Go to Control Panel -> System and press the Hardware tab -> Device Manager

Search through the Root Hub controls and Device controls, specifically looking for the MyBook, and see if there are any additional power saving features listed there. Then see if you can disable those features, if they exist.

Then please report back

Good luck

It seems that the control box, that the actual harddrive is residing in, has an automatic sleep mode setting. I recommend that you talk to the makers of the drive and ask them if they know what's going on. I've never come across this particular piece of hardware, so I'm not familiar with how to solve it.
