Resolving sleep issues with Seagate GoFlex Desk on Mac Snow Leopard

There are number of posts on Seagate's user forums describing frustration with the GoFlex line of external harddrive and its tendency to periodically eject/sleep on Mac's Snow Leopard. I'm using the 2TB GoFlex as my Time Machine drive and needed to resolve this annoyance as well. I've opened a ticket with Seagate Support directly, but so far they've been unable to completely resolve the issue.The only thing that seems to help is to go into System Prefs -> Energy Saver and turn off the feature that puts Hard Drives to sleep. With that power saving feature disabled the Seagate only complains when my Mac actually wakes from sleep - that's an improvement but still no love.
