    So, i got a new HDD (500gb) and y-cable yesterday.
    Transfered all my games, saves and etc. So far so good, but

    I randomly get a "USB has been disconnected" error when i start the console, go to the friendlist or settings. Doesn't happen a lot of times but it's quite annoying.

    I know that there's a hidden sleep mode option for Hard drives which is enabled by default.
    Would disabling it fix my issue, give me more issues or should i rather keep it on?

    There's one way to find out; try it for yourself.

    Turn it off, it will most likely solve your issue - it will just draw more power.
