every day I have the same problem. I put my iMac (2012 27") into sleep and the next morning, I see the message "no bootable device found, insert boot disk" from windows (I have windows 7 installed) and I have to hardreset the computer.


Why does that happen? next time I start OS X i get the message "you shut down your computer because of a problem". every day.

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), 27", fusion, 3.4GHz i7, 680MX

    In Windows, is there a "Put Hard Drives to sleep when possibl" option you can uncheck?

    I get this same problem too.  I have mac calling me tomorrow too.  Did you have windows set as default operating system on start up?  I had to hold down the power button to power off.  When I powered up again it booted into windows.  This is what makes me think i had windows set as default.  I get the same problem when booting in OS X about you encountering a problem.


    Question, when you put it into sleep mode....was it in OSX?  Mine was....I wonder if we need to keep OSX default.
