    Hi all

    If I plug in a USB drive before opening and waking my MBP, the drive isn't detected unless I disconnect and reconnect it again once the computer has woken up. Does anyone know why it does this and if there is a way to get it to recognise the drive that's connected?

    Many thanks

    M.

    Not while it's asleep. I would have thought, however, that the drive management system would have parsed out any new drives on wakeup, but I guess not.
