    One day I couldnt wake my macbook from sleep with my firewire WD Mybook 500G connected, so I power off the macbook manually and start it up again.
    It then triggered kernel panic, and i found that my macbook resume normal if i do not connect the firewire external HD. I performed PRAM reset and even PMU reset but it still couldnt help.

    I searched some old posts here but still couldnt find any solution. Please see if anyone could help. Thx!!

    Below is the kernel panic report:

    It turned out that the problem was from the WD software Memeo (Anywhere backup). I removed the software and problem gone.
