post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Ok so i use my computer to charge my phone overnight as asrock has a program for that when under sleep.
When i resume sleep and into my normal activities C Drive will be on and MY Other 2 will have disconnected meaning I need to restart.

Any help?

EDIT:

I'm curious are the misbehaving drives internal sata/ide based or external esata/usb/firewire based?

There in AHCI mode in The bios connected through Sata!
post #4 of 6
There must be something wrong with them, or something. Did you try different Sata ports? Are they the same drive? Did you look for a firmware update for them?

Regardless, what you ask generally isn't possible: the power supply shuts down in Sleep mode and the 12V lines go dead, so the drives can't stay running. It may be possible to change the C state of sleep in the BIOS, but then its not really a lower mode anymore as your fans and everything else will stay running.

People have been indicating on other forums that this problem is due to certain sata ports on specific motherboards that do not function after the PC resumes from sleep.
Others have also experienced this problem with specific drives that do not support S3 sleep states. Like kevmatic has suggest you could try changing the default C sleep state in your Bios. If that does not work I'd try putting the drives on different sata ports and see if that fixes it.

GL and keep us posted!
