-Y Force an IDE drive to immediately enter the lowest power consumption
      sleep mode, causing it to shut down completely. A hard or soft reset is
      required before the drive can be accessed again (the Linux IDE driver
      will automatically handle issuing a reset if/when needed). The current
      power mode status can be checked using the -C flag.

so - you need a hard or soft reset to go on ...
