Get USB HDD to sleep in Ubuntu automatically

I installed Ubuntu on my Android TV stick MK908 and have been using it as a low-powered home server. Tiny as it is , it delivers very decent performance. I set up mail, ftp, http, VPN ansd smb servers on it, and it’s been running pretty well so far. But one problem is that the USB HDD being attached to it got very hot in the morning. That means the USB HDD was not put into suspend mode even the computer had entered into standby mode. After googling for a while, i came across HD-IDLE, which can suspend your USB HDD after a specified period of time.
