    The problem is, every time I put my macbook to sleep or restart it, the network folders disconnect, and I have to re-browse and re-attach them.

    Is there any way to have a these network hard discs show up as local hard discs (i.e. discs that don't disconnect every time I restart my computer or wake from sleep) that stay there permanently?

    I just created an alias for each drive and it works great for me.

    Apple - Please Fix The Networking in OS X! NOW!

    You can automount them using fstab or the equivalent in BSD Unix.

    Oh, grow up. A computer cannot maintain a network connection while it is asleep. You have been given a workaround for this fact. Use it.

    Ha! You think I need to grow up? No - OS X needs to GROW UP and give us modern features, technologies and UI so that we don't need stupid workarounds :mad:

    You're right - the system can't maintain a network connection while it is sleeping, but Apple could program it to reconnect at wakeup time to any networks/shares open before it went to sleep.
