Files on Flash Drive Not Usable After Mac Comes Out of Sleep
Posted on 2004-08-03
This question is not urgent, just still following up on issues related to flash drives. I had one client whose G4 went into kernel panic because of her flash drive. Now I have another who cannot open any files on her flash drive if her Powerbook goes to sleep with the flash drive in. It does two different things, 1) doesn't let her open her Illustrator files even if she removes them from the flash drive and 2) tells her that the flash drive was not removed properly.
I have researched this on the web. I find the problem in tech support forums, but no solution other than to turn off the sleep mode.
If she removes the flash drive before it goes to sleep, all is well. It is related to the energysaver function.
Is there a fix other than to stay awake forever?
