Google has failed me. How do I stop my external Toshiba USB drive from going to sleep on its own when connected to my iMac file server?

I have a Toshiba external USB drive, PN PH3100U-1EXB, which puts itself into sleep mode once every 10 minutes since I upgraded to 10.7 (Lion). Is there a Mac-native tool to remove the "backup CD" and sleep mode built into this thing? I've heard the Windows-only tool is ineffective. It =used= to work under the previous rev of MacOS...

There seems to be quite a few little third-party utilities for this, as it's a common problem. Have you tried this one?
