Do you have a general timeout for the Iriver activated?
In that case the unit will shut down after x minutes of doing nothing.
Otherwise I see no reason why the microphone should not stay
active even if you do not record.

If you place your external microphone close to the unit, it will "hear" the
HD spin up. You can minimize that by placing the microphone away from
the Iriver. In very quiet situations where this doesn't help, you
should wrap the
Iriver into something that blocks sound once the recording is started.
