No, it will not work. We have no control over the drive motor. All we
can do it to tell the drive to spin up (by accessing a sector in the
case of STANDBY, or by soft resetting it in the case of SLEEP).
In the disk poweroff mode, we cut the power to the entire drive, not
just the motor, so we can't do anything there either.
