Once there don't touch any of the on-screen buttons but instead hold down on the D-pad and the "+" and "-" buttons for a couple of seconds. A hidden option will show up to enable or disable the Sleep Mode on the removable HDD. You can do this even if you don't have a HDD plugged in.

    Wii U.
    Someone mentioned it online somewhere and I figured not many others knew about it as well. So might as well raise awareness of a useful feature.
