WD elements desktop going in sleep every hour

Hello ,

i have a WD elements desktop I bought a couple of weeks ago. (6 TO)
It’s working well when i plug it, but every hour it goes into sleep mode, even if you’re accessing documents on it. ( not very practical to watch a movie…).

I have to physically push the power button at the back(which is supposed not to do anything…) of the drive to make it on again, and it works.

I also can reboot, and sometimes it wakes the drive up.

I tried every single trick with the USB mass storage ( USB sleep OFF, etc.) and It still doesn’t work.

What is going on?

Hi Tonycmoi,

Did you try using WD Elements Desktop with different power adapter in this concern?
