I recognize this question has been asked on these forums before but I'm having no luck with any of the solutions. Here's my situation. I recently purchased an Intel Nuc. Ubuntu is stored on an SSD, my media is stored on a Western Digital My Passport Ultra. I realize this is not optimal, but it's what I have...
This computer is supposed to be my media server but after a while sitting idle the connected harddrive disables therefore rendering it useless. This is obviously a problem. I can't pull out the harddrive as it does not have SATA connectors.
I do not have powertop, powernap or laptop power management stuff installed it's just straight Ubuntu, no bells or whistles.
Here is my drive after running "lsusb" Bus 001 Device 002: ID 1058:0827 Western Digital Technologies, Inc.
I'm incredibly new to linux, meaning three days have passed since I installed, so anything you could do would help. Thanks.
