When I put my MacPro (2009 model) to sleep, the drobo 2nd gen unit sleeps as well. I wake up the MacPro, and the Drobo unit starts up again, with a 1 or 2 min delay.
DroboDashboard was running when i put the machine to sleep. I wake it up, and the Dashboard software is unable to find the drobo again. Only a complete reboot of the machine helps.
Connection is firewire.
That sounds … rather flaky.
Any idea of this being a machine configuration issue or a dashboard issue?
Also, is there any utility out there that can wake up a sleeping drobo, outside of a disconnect/reconnect the firewire cable?
