After 12.2 update, disks spin up/down continuously during Mac sleep

New Member

After updating to 12.2 everything seems normal, but when I put the Mac to sleep, the box spins down, but then after 1-2 seconds of quiet spins up the fans and drives again for ~15 seconds while making reading/writing noises, then they all eventually spin back down again, and the cycle repeats endlessly. 

Does this sound familiar to anyone. I've been shutting it down at night because it makes so much nose in sleep mode.

This is a Bug, or change in Monterey. It happens even with Apple formatted disks.

After the latest MacOS update, the problem went away.
