When my laptop (Macbook Pro) sleeps, or I hibernate it, at some point later the hub seems to go to sleep as well. I do not remember this happening before but after my last trip when I came home this behavior started. What it used to do, and why I liked it, was the strip would stay hot all the time so that when I came down in the morning all I had to do to wake up my laptop was tap the space bar on the external keyboard and everything was ready to go. Now that does not work, the drives show up as “improperly disconnected” and the mouse is unresponsive until I pull the power from the hub, give it a few seconds them plug it back in.
Is there some setting I may have tweaked (accidentally or on purpose) in the Mac power management settings that could have caused this change or has the hub become defective, or worst case … I’m I imagining that it used to work that way?
