Lightbulb Fans spinning even when "sleeping"
Hi folks! I'm hoping someone has some tips or information on this, all things considered, very minor problem.

I have a drobo mini with 4 SSDs installed, connected to my Mac Pro using thunderbolt. When I put my computer to sleep, the drobo mini also does likewise, with all LEDs off except for a yellow LED indicating, I assume, "sleeping". However, the fans still spin, which I am finding minorly annoying as the device is in the same room I, too, am tying to sleep in and the noise is noticable enough.

Is this expected behaviour? I would hope that in this mode the device isn't using enough energy to need air circulation. Is it purely tied to internal temperator, and am I exacerbating the situation by having 4 SSDs ?

Thank you for your consideration!
