Start>Control Panel>Power Options > Change plan settings and set to never.

Cheap, easy and worth a try.

Actually I said that wrong. Sorry. My computer doesn't go into sleep mode. I only cut the screen off at night. But when I come back hrs later, cut the monitor on and go try to access that drive then I hear it actually come to life within a few seconds of me clicking on it and starts responding.
