FWIW usermount shouldn't be used with external green HDDs, it does cause
the known issue ;). I didn't test if udiskie suffers from this issue
too. I still prefer to mount manually using scripts. Rodent (and a few
other tools, have forgotten the names) btw. allows to mount by a click
and doesn't wake up external green drives. This might or might be
something the OP should consider.
