    Hi All.

    I have just bought a 1TB Canvio Stor.e to back up all of my data using the Time Machine. At £50 with a 3 year warranty, it makes sense to me.

    I have reformatted the drive and have backed up for the first time. However the issue is that every time the iMac goes to sleep, it freezes and won't reopen without a forced reboot using the button at the rear. the screen shows up a dark grey and won't budge.

    I have tried ejecting the drive in Finder after use, but that defeats the object and the iMac only finds it again after a small amount if activity to start the issue all over again.

    It is connected to one of the USB ports at the rear.

    I appreciate that my best option would be the wireless Time Capsule, however at 5 times the price, it seems an expensive and costly way of solving this little niggle.

    Thanks, John.

    The problem here is with the drive's firmware not listening to the options you set on your Mac. I did manage to find a partial solution here, but it requires the Terminal to work. Look at the final post in that thread.
