Recently I am getting a mass of "Disk Not Ejected Properly" messages every time my iMac sleeps.


It's running the latest OS version and this is a very recent phenomenon.


Anyone else getting it? Or worked out how to stop it?

You could try leaving a disc in the drive.

Is there actually a disk attached? If there is, check the Energy Saver control panel and untick "Put hard disks to sleep when possible".

These are things I suggested in two other posts for different problems, but they are worth trying for this as well:




delete the contents of these folders (it could be a corrupt cache file that's doing it)






User Folder/Library/Caches


Then restart. Then try this


Reset the SMC and the PRAM.
