External Drive never powers down - can I change that?

HP Recommended
HP-ZBook-15-G3
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I recently purchased a new HP ZBook 15-G3.  When I power down the computer, the external USB-C hard drive (a WD Passport Ultra 1T) keeps running. To stop the external drive, I need to unplug the drive each time.

 

This doesn't seem normal and the manual doesn't address my question.  Any suggestions?
