I moved my iPhoto to an external USB Harddrive and everything at first worked fine.  Now I get these errors sometimes "Your iPhoto Library is missing".  iPhoto will exit and when you start it again everything is fine.  What I think is happening is the external USB drive has gone to sleep due to inactivity.  Is there a setting in OS X that I can control this with ?  I ugly hack would be to set up a cron job to do a ls of the root external USB drive every 15min.  Is there a special feature that you should look for when buying an external USB drive ?  It is very iratating to get these messages from iPhoto and iTunes.
