I recently got a Mac mini to replace an aging Mac Pro. I copied all my data over and everything is running great, and much faster overall. But I'm having one strange bug. When I put my Mac mini to sleep, it wakes up and all of my network shares are gone. I have 4 shares I keep connected all the time, and many more I use occasionally. All of these servers are Macs. I never had an issue like this on the Mac Pro, in all it's years of service. Including the time it was running 10.8. But now, the mini dumps shares - I think every time it goes to sleep, if not, almost every time. It's a real hassle having to reconnect to each share every time you wake up. Plus it's no fun having open documents dissapear either. My network settings are pretty simple, my primary connection is gigabit ethernet. It's first in the "service order" list. I also have airport enabled but not connected. I leave it on so my computer can have location serivces. This is all exactly the same as the setup in the old Mac Pro.


Any ideas?

Mac mini, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.3)
