The constructor for boost::thread takes a function with no parameters, through
the boost::function0 template. Non-static member functions do not fit the bill
--- they need an object to be invoked against, the implicit 'this' parameter.

You can bind the member function with an appropriate 'this' parameter to make
it callable without parameters using boost.bind:

#include "boost/bind.hpp"

void master::Master::createt(){
    thread t1(boost::bind(&Master::sleepslave,this));
