Wake up an external USB connected HD

Hello, I’m running the latest version of OSMC on a Pi 3. I’ve connected an external WD hard drive via USB (a self powered one). After a few minutes without usage the external HD switches to sleep mode and disappears from autoconnected devices list.

Is there a way to wake it and have it reconnected?

Up to now the only way I’ve found is to reboot my Pi 3.


Logs could be helpful. Normally the drive should not be unmounted when it goes to sleep.
