For some reason when I wake my Mac from sleep the screen is black and none of the buttons work. Eventually, I get to the "your computer has restarted because of a problem" then I press any key to resume startup. Does anybody know why this might be happening?

I have a link to the log here.

I am on Big Sur and resetting SMC and NVRAM didn't help.

Do you have any external hard drives attached or USB devices? If so try detaching them and test and see if it still happens. You should also try repairing Disk permissions with Disk Utility. If all else fails, back up your files and reinstall Big Sur.

I had a similar problem in the past with both my iMac Pro and a 16" Intel MacBook Pro, when connected via Thunderbolt to an external hard drive with a spinning disk. Whenever the computer would wake up from sleep it would go through a kernel panic and restart.

As I needed the external hard drive, the only solution I found was to deselect "Wake for network access" in System Preferences / Energy Saver.

This seemed to have been fixed either in Monterey or in a Big Sur update, unfortunately I'm not sure exactly when. I can't reproduce the issue anymore.

Nothing is plugged in and it still happens. Repairing Disk Permissions also didn't fix the issue.

I don't have any external drives connected and it still crashes on Big Sur.
