    Given:
    MacBook Pro, USB flash drive

    Conditions:
    1. Plug flash drive into MacBook USB port
    2. Open some documents from the flash
    3. Leave MacBook until it goes to sleep

    Effects:
    When awoken USB is unmount and all opened documents are frozen.
    Have to unplug USB flash and plug in back again.

    Questions:
    Is it how it is supposed to be?
    How do you prevent USB from unmounting when MacBook goes into sleep mode?

    You can't prevent it from unmounting but you could set the MacBook to not fall asleep.

    Is there a way then to set some sort of automatic mount on when awoken?
