Issues with the G-Drive 8TB disk

I am seeking clarification on why my external disk intermittently powers off and restarts,

particularly when I access it by clicking on its icon. This disk is connected directly to my Mac Book Pro M1 using the original cable that came with the set.

I’m wondering if this behavior is related to energy-saving settings or some other operational mode that might be causing interruptions.

Additionally, I am unsure whether it’s preferable to connect the back part of the disk’s icon directly to the Mac Book or if using the second input with a cable would be more appropriate. I appreciate any insights or advice on these matters and apologize if these inquiries appear straightforward.

Thanks
