My MY Book has become very slow to wake from its sleep mode. The drive spins, spins faster, spins, spins faster, spins, spins, and spins until it finally get going. And, if I do not access it for more than 10 minutes, the drive seems to stop spinning and tries to return to sleep. I have to take some action to keep it awake. This remains me of playing with a screen saver. I have run diagnostices and switched computer -same issues. Is it the drive or the cable? I can’t afford to lose the data! Help, please.
Hi dude, if your drive uses Smartware then you can disable the sleep timer under settings> drive settings.
