Get pop up messages that external hard drives are being ejected as computer wakes from sleep.
I use a script called fixusb.sh and you can find it here: https://github.com/syscl/Fix-usb-sleep/blob/master/fixUSB.sh
I was wondering if there are other solutions to this problem. What happens is like the OP stated; sometimes (randomly) the computer tells me the hard drive wasn't ejected properly when I wake it up from sleep. I did not disconnect the drive, just put the computer to sleep.
The solution proposed above just unmounts the hard drive, but I want it to stay mounted all the time.
The drive does mount again when you wake up the computer, the only real 'issue' is that notification that has to be clicked away every time. To my knowledge, the hard drive is not damaged by this issue (or is it?) and it wouldn't happen if the computer was still using the hard drive. I have a backup BTW.

The script is supposed to remount the drive at wake up. It doesn't work in your case?
Corrected link BTW: https://github.com/syscl/Fix-usb-sleep
I did not know it would remount at wake up, didn't think it said so in the description. I'll give it a try, thanks!
