It is drawing too much power. Is the battery charged? Will it run with the ac adapter?

Does the hard disk work on another computer? I think it is putting too much of a load on the usb port.

2.5 hdd only draw power from +5v rail(500-700ma 4watt maximum). Is this external or internal hard drive?

When usb port can't provide enough power (500ma) the device connected thru usb port will not work(computer will not shutdown). Try to connect it to a tower(use rear usb ports) to confirm if the hdd works well.
