[Thunder3 Duo Pro] Can the unit be powered off when not in use?

The AKiTiO Thunder3 Duo Pro does not have a power button. Instead, the power status is controlled by the host computer. When the Thunderbolt or USB cable is disconnected and the host computer goes into sleep mode or is turned off, the device will go into idle mode (disks spin down, fan turns off, LED lights go dim).
