    I've installed Windows 10 on my tMBP and twice now, after putting it to sleep for a matter of hours (once in the day and once over night), I open it up and it boots in Windows. At first I thought it was because it shut down, but there was plenty of battery left upon reboot. Can anyone help explain this?

    Do us all a favor and copy and paste the error log as <code> into your post. Click on the upload_2017-2-3_11-38-30.png button when editing your post in order to do so.

    As for your question, are there any external devices connected to your MB? An external HDD or anything like that?

    Hey thanks for your reply. I pasted the content of the error but I no longer have the title. Is there a way to see what it was?

    Admittedly, I have nothing informative or helpful to add to this, but when I read the title, I burst into a laugh. Bill would love it and Steve would have fired somebody if it were to happen to him. :p

    On another note, it made me think of sleeping and waking up as someone else. Very, very interesting thing you have going on there. I hope you resolve it soon.

    Preferences -> Startup Disks -> Choose your preferred startup disk

    Then restart. That might fix it and it might not! Worth a try though.

    I did that a week ago and it stopped happening. Today it happened again though. Actually I had my computer open and charged. The screen went black and booted in f***in Windows. It seems that startup disk option is only on a one-time basis?

    To me it seems it is a one-time basis for startup disk.

    There's no way to make Mac OS the default startup? Seems odd.

    This sounds like synopsis for nerd horror!
    (Sorry, I know it's not a useful post, but I too laughed out loud when I saw the title!)
