Why is my drive locking and entering standby mode while connected to my PC even after I have configured the power settings correctly?

If Windows ignores revised power settings, PowerShell is a more effective tool for managing the suspend commands. Microsoft provides a PowerShell script here

Download the Windows PowerShell script from Microsoft and save it to C:\Temp. Right click on the Windows 10 Start icon, and from the pop up menu select ‘Windows Powershell (Admin)’. Within PowerShell change directory to C:\Temp Type: cd c:\Temp Type: Powershell -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -NoProfile -File ToggleSuspend.ps1 This will list USB devices and their suspend policies. Take note of drives listed. If no USB drives are connected, nothing will be displayed. Press Enter to exit the script. Attach and unlock the Apricorn secure device to your computer. Type: Powershell -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -NoProfile -File ToggleSuspend.ps1 Enter the USB drive number for the Apricorn drive (it will be the new one on the list, and likely number 1) and press Enter. Type: Powershell -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -NoProfile -File ToggleSuspend.ps1 This will list USB devices and their suspend policies. Verify that the Apricorn drive has Disabled displayed under, ‘SuspendOnIdle’. Press enter to exit the script
