I didn't have a chance to save it before the computer went to sleep. I believe Windows has a rollback option to go back to a previous state of time on the computer, or to before the problem. Does Mac have this option? Or is there any other way to retrieve my work?
Welcome to the forum Sevie . . . .
To answer your Question in short.
No. Not unless you have incremental backups that you have done yourself. The only way to retrieve this data is with a lot of $ and thats only if you havnt written to the HDD since it crashed.
There is Data Rescue 3
where you can dl it, scan to see if there is any data to recover and then the option to buy it to retrieve said lost data..
But sorry, by the sounds of it you have lost that Christmas present
I would be looking at why you are getting the Kernel Panics if i was you so it doesnt happen again ...
