Using external SSD for backup purposes

iMac - MacRumors Forums - forums.macrumors.com
Hello. I know there is a similar thread on this but didn't want to hijack it with my question! I'm in the process of buying an iMac Pro and was planning on using a Samsung T5 external SSD connected into one of the Thunderbolt 3 connections (USB type-C to type-C connection) as one of my backup options, using Time Machine (will have a separate drive and cloud backup to complement). So I was planning on keeping the Samsung permanently connected.

I've read in the "Two Serious Problems With New 10-core iMac Pro" thread that when the iMac Pro goes to sleep it disconnects the external drive. So if this is correct, my plan of using the Samsung for permanent connection/backup is no good. Is that correct or have I misunderstood?

Many thanks!
