Hi all,
I have just started using the sleep mode on my iMac 20" Core Duo. I think that it is a wonderful idea but I have a small problem......

When I bring the mac out of sleep the system comes back to life great but for some reason my 250Gb External USB 2.0 HDD does not always restart at the same time. The little icon is on the desktop still but the HDD itself does not come to life. The only way that I have found to restart the External HDD is to restart the iMac. Which kind of defeats the idea of putting it in sleep mode to start with anyway.

This is however an intermittent problem. Sometimes it works and sometimes it don't.

Any suggestions appreciated.
