Jellyfish Disconnects After Mac Falls Asleep

macOS does not support network connections when your Mac goes to sleep. Here are the recommended settings to prevent disconnections from your OWC Jellyfish.

When a Mac goes to sleep, it drops most network connections. As a consequence, your Mac will disconnect from the OWC Jellyfish whenever it goes to sleep.

You can avoid this by changing the Energy Saver preferences to prevent sleeping. Here are the steps:

Go to macOS System Preferences and click on Energy Saver.

Drag "Turn display off after" to "Never." Check "Prevent computer from sleeping automatically when the display is off."

That's it! If you prefer to utilize the Mac sleep function, we recommended that you unmount your shares whenever you will be away from your computer for a significant amount of time.
