Seagate back up plus 1 tb reloads when I plug in or plug out the power

I have an external hard drive Seagate backup plus 1 tb working fine with Sony vaio E15136 win 8.1 64 bit 4gb Ram. As long as I change the power supply i.e either plug in or plug out the power supply of my laptop, external drive is re-detected.
The external drive draws power from laptop.No external power source.
In case of USB pen drives this thing didn't happen.
Looking for any solution or explanation?

  1. Is the laptop plugged in when this happens? (could be a power issue)
  2. Other then that, i'd check for any BIOS updates for the laptop
  3. And any firmware upgrades for the drive

Re-detection just happens when I plug in or plug out the laptop charger
BIOS software is upto date as per official vaio website
External hard drive is plug and play ,doesn't need any software although comes with Seagate dashboard software....

Hello all I could really tell a long story here of all the issues I have been dealing with and could provide if requested, but to make this a bit shorter, can we now not just plug and unplug a USB 3.0 drive like we used to with 2.0? All in all I seem to have really screwed up the...

USB to electrical power plug? / or solar/AA powered
Does such a thing exist? I sometimes find I need my external drive for like 5 minutes on the road without a socket in sight so it'd be great if I could just have it suck power from my computers USB port. Or even solar power. Obviously I wouldn't power something for a long time with it. ...
