    the hdd needs to be formatted correctly not the wii...

    and check this out for your hdd sleep/standby mode
    FreeAgent | Go, FreeAgent | Desk, FreeAgent | XTreme | Seagate

    also check in your loader setting if it set to search from your usb and if it plugged into the right port on the wii.
