LR doesn't see external hard drive after being left on overnight

Having an issue with external drive. Working on a Dell XPS 8700 I'll be working in LR and then will stop for the night. When I returnthe next day, the photos are still there but if I try to edit them that day I get an error. I ahve to restart the EHDs to get LR to see the original images so that I can edit. Once I disconnect and reconnect the EHDs I'm fine. Anyone else getting this?

You probably have sett the Drives to go to sleep when not in use.  On am Mac that would be in the Energy Saver  Applet in Preferences.  There is a similar setting for Windows but I can't tell you how to fix Windows.
