I *love* this little hub--IMHO Apple should send one to every one of us that own previous generation Apple CinemaDisplays along with an apology letter.
Unfortunately, after using it for a few days I've become frustrated with a regular pattern: when my MacBook Pro goes to sleep, sometimes the USB portion of the hub stops working. Specifically, the USB keyboard and mouse I have plugged in do not wake up the MBP, and unplugging and replugging the hub don't help. Even after waking the MBP up manually by opening it up and using the built-in keyboard or TouchBar, it continues not to recognize the USB devices, although the Mini DisplayPort and USB-C pass thru work fine. Sometimes rebooting fixes it, sometimes it doesn't. It just starts working again, eventually--haven't figure out why or when.
This happens for me both at home and at work, with a different set of USB devices at each. It also doesn't matter if I plug the USB devices directly into the HyperDrive or into my Apple CinemaDisplay (which is itself a further USB hub).
Anyone else seeing this problem? It is incredibly frustrating and will force me to return what should be the perfect solution :(
