This has been mentioned on here before under other drives but here goes again!

Just a heads up incase you happen to be running one these Western Digital drives of large capacity in conjunction with AHCI enable in BIOS (IDE Mode need not apply as this issue doesn't rear its ugly head in that mode)and you notice that after your PC comes out of sleep that your drive is suddenly gone then you can apply this Microsoft Hotfix.

The hotfix addresses Stop error messages in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 however it's mentioned in other forums to address the Sleep issue, in fact it has fixed mine also.

I am running an HTPC in AHCI mode with my main C:drive being a WD10EADS 1TB drive (this issue doesn't happen on drives 1TB or less) and my Movies drive consisting of the WD15EARS.

Anyhow, you've been served!

You can google WD15EARS in ahci mode dissappears to read some others...

Thank you so much for posting this information. You've prevented me from having to RMA my drive! I wrote up some info about it on my blog and linked this page. Hopefully it will get a little bit more notice!
