Default External Hard Drive Enclosure Auto Shutoff

I've been shopping for an external hard drive enclosure recently to store drives with backup data and I would also really like one for everyday use with my MCE PC that will auto shutoff after inactivity. I already have a Seagate external drive that does this, but the other drive I have is in an enclosure I bought and it stays on all the time. Are there any good enclosures out there that have this feature? I can't seem to find any that explicitly say either way.

Thanks
