i have seriously problems with the Ultrabay HDD SATA adapter in my new T520. I have a 500 GB Toshiba disk in it and all works fine until i set the machine in sleep. (Close the lid or something else).
After powering up the notebook again the disk is disappeared. And there is obviously no power on the disk either. I have already tried a lot of things to get it back but nothing helps. The only way to get the disk back is to power down the whole machine, remove the adapter, put the adapter back and power on again.
I tried to use the diskupdate.exe in scheduled tasks - it doesn't help.
I tried also to put back the DVD-drive and change the power setup there for the bay - it doesn't help either.
I tried to copy the DVD-link with the power on option on the desktop and use it against the HDD-Bay adapter, nothing happens.
As it is now, the Harddisk is quite useless. Every time when i set the machine in sleep i'm loosing the harddrive connection and have to reboot all. Does anybody have any ide how to solve this problem?
Much thanks for any help

Sorry, i didn't find any configuration about powering down the optical drive in BIOS setup. It's only som speed setup there. The problem resists even when i set the powerplan to high performance. I still have no idea how to solve this.
