My MBA is starting to have a strange issue in that it appears to be crashing while it is in sleep mode. I think I first noticed it happening 2 or 3 weeks ago but its happened quite a few times since then, 5+ times at least.

I'll put the MBA to sleep for the night and the next evening when I open the lid I may or may not have an error message up saying "Your computer was restarted because of a problem. Click "Send to Apple" to submit the report.. etc, etc.."

Most times I leave my MBA plugged into the AC adapter, headphones, and mini displayport to VGA adapter to my HDTV. I specifically go to the Apple menu > Sleep to sleep the MBA for the night before shutting the lid.

I did some searching awhile back after the first couple times it did this. The only suggestion I could find then was to check the Energy Saver options and turn off:
Put hard disks to sleep when possible
Wake for Wi-Fi network access
Enable Power Nap while plugged into a power adapter

I have those settings all set to off so that didn't work for me.

Last night I did have iTunes completely crash on me in the middle of a movie. I don't think I even got one of those "<program name> quit unexpectedly" error messages on that one. Hopefully my RAM isn't going bad??

I'm off to try the usual fixes: PRAM, SMC, permissions repair, Apple Hardware Test. Other suggestions/fixes would be most appreciated!

If it helps, heres the crash report that was up when I opened the lid on my MBA this evening:

update - SMC and PRAM resets the other day didn't help, it gave me the same error message the next night or so.

I have started unplugging the VGA adapter before putting the MBA to sleep and luckily (so far) it has been fine. Weird?

This used to happen on Lion as I recall, but I can't remember how it was fixed. What version are you running ?

Newest OS X 10.9.2. It's the 2012 MBA in my sig.

update:
I ran the extended test in Apple Hardware Test twice this afternoon and the MBA passed. Also went ahead and verified the disk and repaired permissions. Going to try leaving the TV plugged in again and see if I get the error/crash again in the next few days. If it does it again I'm trying a different VGA adapter, maybe that's what the problem is. Strange but who knows.. will see what happens.

I have the same issue with my MacBook Pro and I have no idea what's going on.

So far, it would seem to be an issue with my Bluetooth since when I try to wake it up with my keyboard it crashes.

I'm experiencing the exact same issue on my Air. It's very frustrating as this is a brand new machine. I have the 27" Thunderbolt Display and often when I disconnect my MBA and open the lid I will find that it has crashed and gives me the same, "Your computer was restarted because of a problem" error.

My 2012 Macbook Air 13 did this the other day too.. I have the newest 10.9.2 installed also.

Hope it doesn't keep happening, but it seems like a bunch of users are experiencing the same thing. "Sleep/wake event"

Well I haven't had any issues with my MBA for months now. I have not been leaving it connected to my HDTV, though.

Found the Prob on my iMac

Well if I turn off my Logitech (848nm) Laser mouse (can leave the USB receiver plugged in) the problem goes away.

I was using a 2010 MBA as an HTPC for a while. It was connected to my TV almost all the time.

It was very picky about the order that I turned the TV on vs. woke the laptop from sleep.

I remember I had to turn the TV on, wait for a few seconds, then wake up the laptop. Likewise I had to turn the laptop off, wait a few seconds, and then turn the TV off. Otherwise the laptop would often get into a state where the screen was completely black, it wouldn't do anything, and I had to do a hard reset.

Not the same symptoms but maybe turning the TV/laptop on/off in this order might help you.

Guess I have been lucky but I can put my 2014 MBA 13 to sleep for a couple of days with the mouse doggle connected and it wakes up right where I left off even in Windows 7 Pro via bootcamp.
