    My usb hdd sleeps after 15 minutes of inactivity. While this normally doesn't happen, if I pause a game for 10-15 minutes, then it goes to sleep. The problem is that when this happens on pc, any app will wait till it wakes up and then carry on with its work. In USB Loader games, that's it. The game will no longer load and I have to restart the wii.

    Is there a way to get the usbloader to recognize the drive after it wakes up? It seems that the sleeping thing is part of the drive's firmware, so I doubt that can be changed.

    I'm using both Loader GX and Uloader.
