SanDisk Extreme Portable SSD V2 2TB disconnects when laptop goes to sleep

The drive just gets ejected when the laptop goes into sleep mode, even when it’s in use, resulting in read & write errors as the device cannot be found.

When the laptop wakes up the drive immediately reconnects and works normally but I cannot leave the drive doing any kind of work overnight due to the disconnects.

I’ve tried all kinds of power settings - USB always on, never turn off drive, USB root hub power management, etc. Nothing works, and it always disconnects when I leave it overnight and it does so regardless of the USB port it’s connected to (laptop or usb hub).

I use a lot of external HDD drives (WD Passport, WD_Black, Seagate Expansion Portable), all 2.5" without power supply, and they all work properly, I’ve never had a drive disconnect when in use.

Any ideas how to solve this?

My laptop is Lenovo Yoga 7 15ITL5.
