[kwlug-disc] Unmounting flash drives question

When unmounting a flash drive the light doesn't turn off. I can see that the
drive is unmounted, but the light not turning off the drive is a concern. Is
it actually safe to disconnect the flash drive? Isn't some current still
running through the drive electronics? Is there something other than
unmounting the drive that should be done to "shut it off?"

Thanks,
