I had a problem with the sleep settings on my WD Green 1.5 TB HDD, however that effected all operations related to that drive (not just the Recycle Bin).
The OP stated that he had an SSD (it's not clear if he has a HDD as well).
Do SSDs have a sleep setting?
Do you have another image viewer program?
If yes, do you have the same problem?
If no, I recommend IrfanView.
It does a lot more than just view pictures.
You can view video, listen to music, view txt files (and possibly pdf files with something called ghostscript). IrfanView - Official Homepage - one of the most popular viewers worldwide
