I have a number of hard drives in my computer including an SSD drive I use for some storage. When I boot my computer, the SSD drive works perfectly. When my computer is inactive and goes to sleep, then wakes the SSD drive does not wake and I need to reboot the computer to make power on the drive again.

The drive model is a SanDisk Extreme Pro 480.

Do you have any ideas what could be causing this?
