t410 eSATA combo port does not power external 2.5" HDD

Hi.
I have ThinkPad t410  ,  2516CTO
I connecting to it new Verbatim HDD by eSATAp cable.

  http://www.verbatim-europe.co.uk/en_1/product_portable-hard-drive-esata---usb-combo-500gb_19480.html
Drive is never get powered.

   though with USB help it works by eSATA fine.

It looks like that's Powered port is just simulation


How could I test what's wrong:  notebook port, a BIOS/SATA setting, cable or drive enclosure?

the T410 eSATA is not a combo eSATA/usb slot, so there is no power going through it.
