My new Mac mini (just bought it, running 10.6.3 with the latest security update) isn’t waking my Drobo v2 attached via FW800 from sleep. (i.e. when I put the Mac to sleep, the Drobo also goes to sleep-all lights on the front panel turn off-and then when I wake the Mac, the Drobo doesn’t also wake from sleep.)
When I previously had the Drobo v2 attached to my 2008 MacBook Pro, it would wake from sleep just fine. The weird thing is, the Drobo v2 shows up in the sidebar in the Finder under Devices, even when it is asleep. But…when I click on its icon, it takes about 10 seconds to spin up and for the folders to appear. The only other way to get it to wake from sleep is to reboot the mini.
What’s up with that? Any insight much appreciated.
Edit: Drobo v2 also fails to show up in Drobo Dashboard when the mini wakes from sleep, as described above. It doesn’t matter if I’ve manually woken the Drobo v2 from sleep by clicking on it in the Devices sidebar of the Finder or not-it still doesn’t show up in Drobo Dashboard.
