comment How to fix Mountain Lion that is very slow after sleep by timeout?
@RomanTruba, I was experiencing the same erratic behavior on my Retina MBP. I believe I found the regularity. If I delete the hibernatefile (/var/vm/sleepimage in my case), the MBP wakes up instantly after sleep. However, restarting the MacBook creates the file anew and then causes sluggish wake-up behavior.

comment How to make external disks reappear on desktop in Mountain Lion?
This is independent of the setting I mentioned. – Yes, if you disable the external disks in the Finder Preferences, they won’t show up either. So the preference you point out may help. It is incorrect, however, that this is "much easier", because it is unrelated.

comment How to make external disks reappear on desktop in Mountain Lion?
Actually, as I just realised, no icons whatsoever appear on my desktop. I just created a file in ~/Desktop and it does not appear on my desktop either. Is there a setting to prevent Mountain Lion from displaying files on the desktop?

@IconDaemon, thanks for the suggestion. Unfortunately it did not help.

@JW8, yes the drives are fine. They appear in the Finder sidebar and under /Volumes; and they work just fine.
