    Hi Felix,

     

    I've noticed the same problem my MacBook Pro (Retina Mid 2012), after several hours of it sleeping, I have to restart it.

     

    The logs show an error "mdworker(1091) deny mach-lookup com.apple.ls.boxd" I'm running OS X 10.8.2 (12C3006).

     

    Have you found a resolution to the cause of the problem?

     

    Regards,

     

    Mike.

    Out-of-date versions of 1password have been known to cause some issues in previous systems.

     

    You should take a careful look at the support sites for all of those add-ons, or simply not install them.

    Hi Felix,

     

    Outside of the core OS the only apps we have in common is Dropbox. I don't use launchbar or 1password.

     

    I'll uninstall drop box and see if things improve.

     

    Cheers,

     

    Mike.

    Felix,

     

    I've had the same model Mac Pro and the same problem really since I've purchased it back in 2009.  I have gone through 4 OS iterations (Leopard, Snow Leopard, Lion, Mountain Lion) and even did a clean install at one point.  I've done all as listed in this post and much beyond this and I've have never been able to resovle.  The other issue is that I've always had trouble even getting the machine to sleep on it's own and use a program called "Please Sleep" to even force into sleep mode on a regular basis.....  Not the answer you were looking for, but if you ever find a solution please post....

    F,

     

    Yes, I did a clean install of SL and one point and did it with a newly installed drive and then switched that to my default startup disk.   The old primary boot drive is now a secondary "backup" boot disk that I clone once a week with SuperDuper.  Problem remained the same.

    Felix,

     

    So are you saying the issue/resolution was a bad drive, doing a clean install of ML, or both?

     

    Thanks,

    Dan
