PowerShell script to disable suspend
The script when run lists all the storage devices and gives you an option to pick a device to either enable or disable the suspend setting.
Download the ToggleSuspend.ps1 to a local directory.
(rename it to ToggleSuspend.ps1 ...)
Right click on Start button and select "Command Prompt (Admin) option to start a command prompt with Administrator privilege.
Cd to the directory where you have the script saved.
Run "Powershell -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -NoProfile -File ToggleSuspend.ps1”. Remove the quotes when you copy paste.
This may be a solution, too. (Start as admin)
Thanks for this tip. I've used it.
