Oh, I misunderstood "connected" as in the device may not be connected when the system wakes up. "Connected" is a logical state to me, but I can see it was supposed to mean plugged in.

I agree. There's no issue with a cable being yanked while the system is asleep that doesn't also exist for the cable being yanked while it's awake.

Well, except that since going to sleep correlates with a lull in user activity, there's a higher chance of that yank happening while the system is asleep. But since preventing the sleep won't prevent the lull in user activity, I don't suppose that's relevant to the question of whether suspension should be blocked.
