Marvell 6480 SATA Controller Won't sleep drives

Hoping someone can help me with this. I just populated my unRAID box with 8 more HD's. All of these Drives are on a Supermicro AOC-SASLP-MV8 Marvell 6480 8 Channel SAS/SATA RAID PCI-E Card. After a week of use I just realized that none of the 8 drives on this controller ever go to sleep. I have 20 drives in the box and all the other drives sleep when inactive (have a 45 min time out policy) but the drives on the Marvell controller never sleep. What's worse is that 7 out of the 8 drives I put in the box have NO data on them. So I know they're not staying awake because of disk activity. Anyone else experience this?
