Older My Book 1 TB and Operation after wait on BIOS pswd. delay

Howdy Folks,

My external My Book hangs, i.e. hangs in suspension, if the sys sits for 10 - 15 minutes at a BIOS password entry.

Sometimes I reboot and walk away for awhile, sys gets to the BIOS password screen and waits.   After I get back, enter password my sys hangs because the My Book external is hanging.  It doesn’t cycle.  So, I have to unplug from sys, then re-boot, plug the My Book back into sys…and then OUILA…it works.  UH…whats goin’ on here folks?

Any reply would be welcome…thanks in advance
