For the benefit of others, that is a MacBook Pro Mid-2012 13-inch non-Retina. It is as close to a bullet-proof notebook that Apple ever made.



It does have a couple of vulnerabilities, though.



The big one is the hard drive cable. It is really a super-thin, flexible printed circuit board. It suffers a circuitous routing over some sharp metal edges on the chassis. After 3-6 years of the vibration from normal use and transport, the thin insulation on the cable can chafe and wear, and yours could be nine years old. The symptoms of a worn cable can mimic a failing hard drive. Have you upgraded the hard drive?



The other is at once a benefit and a liability--it was the last MBP to have user-accessible RAM slots. Good is that you can add RAM, up to 16GB with RAM from the right vendor. Bad is that some users install cheap RAM that Macs don't like.



Incompatible or under-spec RAM can cause kernel panics. Have you changed/added RAM? If so, what brand and model of RAM?



It's hard to tell from the panic report but it appears you have several of third-party system mods. Can you confirm?

I have not put any 3rd party mods to the system other than removing the optical drive and putting an SSD for extra storage.



RAM in this system is original from Apple. I never removed or upgraded the RAM. I have 8GB of RAM on the system.



The computer goes into restart after not using it for a certain period of time. I found that shutting down and turning it on is faster than bringing it back from sleep mode.



Can you please specify which are the 3rd party mods does the computer have?



Thanks a lot.

That is a major hardware modification. Kernel panics and other problems should be expected.
