If connected to a Mac Studio, and loaded with Pro Blade memory sticks, will this unit auto power down at some point? And if so, what's the trigger? I'd need this to sty powered up.

The SanDisk Professional PRO-BLADE STATION has its own power adapter; it'll remain powered as long as it's connected to its power adapter, though it will turn off on its own after a few minutes of inactivity if it's not plugged into a host computer.

Will SSD blade volumes safely unmount when I power down Mac Studio, or must I remember to manually unmount all volumes first?
