ST506 drive not spinning...

Anyone know if an ST506 interface drive should always start spinning as
soon as power is applied? I've never known one that doesn't, but I'm not
sure if (as with SCSI drives) there's a way of rigging things so they
only start when connected to a controller.

Dug the Masscomp out of storage (it reeks of mouse piss) but the drives
show no signs of spinning on the bench with just power applied - just
get a click from the solenoid and that's it.
