I’m running a 2GB MBL with firmware 02.32.05-044 that has worked great for the last 6 months and spent most of its time asleep (as it should since it is infrequently accessed redundant backup storage).
I installed wd2go on an iPad3, an older iPod Touch, and a Blackberry Bold 9780 (yes all in the same day, I wasn’t thinking of debugging issues because wd2go was working so well…) and now my MBL remains awake, will not go to sleep, enter energy save mode, hibernate, or whatever other lingo you want to call it.
On my MBL’s web interface, “Mobile Access” was enabled (I’m pretty sure it was disabled previously) and all three devices were listed with a status of “connected” (after having some fun figuring out the activation code for the BB which activation was completely seamless on the Apple devices).
Since installing wd2go, I haven’t seen any other status for these mobile devices despite all efforts to turn off wd2go on them and despite powering off these devices. As nothing else in my network has changed, I suspect that any of enabling “mobile access” or the permanent “connected” status of my devices or both is what is keeping my MBL from going back to sleep.
To be sure it’s not a settings issue, I disabled then re-enabled the sleep feature.
Please let me know if you have any experience with this problem (or a related one) to help me debug and resolve this issue.
I’ll update with details of what I’ve tried to do to resolve this later.
