Windows 7 crashes after coming out of standby

I am running a dell xps m1330, 2.0 ghz 32 bit intel core duo, and a geforce 8400M GS video card. After I installed windows 7 after a random but lengthy set of computer idle time (ie 4-6 hours). I will come back to the computer, boot it up, and it will tell me that it has suffered an unexpected shutdown and that I can either boot normally or check disk. I ran an event report for the situation and I got these two events that really stuck out to me.

Which makes me think for sure that it is a driver issue but I have installed the latest NVIDIA drivers for windows 7 so I have no other idea as to what this could be. Any thoughts? I have read numerous other posts based on that particular file having issues but what I don't quite understand is why this issue happens when my computer is left idle for a long period of time compared to as most people have it crash on them right during bootup/while a game is being played. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My sleep/wake problems have always be the result of
1) Nvidia Video driver
2) Overclocking Ram

I use sleep quite a bit between my gaming rig, home theater rig, netbook, and laptop.

Try
1) updating your BIOS
2) set BIOS to defaults
3) upgrade your video driver

I had problems with Nvidia's latest video driver 186.16 and waking from sleep and had to roll back to the beta 186.06

I have the exact same problem with my system and filed a bug on it with Connect.
We tracked it down to my RAID drivers (Microsoft says that there's one specific section of code that's involved in storage drivers).

The solution is to use Win7 drivers for my RAID controller. Unfortunately, the manufacturer of my RAID card (HighPoint) isn't releasing Win7 drivers for my card - so I've got purchase a card that will have Win7 drivers!

I'd still pay attention to the info in the error reports tho' - it could be that the issue isn't identical to mine. In order to test, put the system into Sleep manually. If it crashes that way every time, then it's got the same symptoms as mine does.

"I had problems with Nvidia's latest video driver 186.16 and waking from sleep and had to roll back to the beta 186.06"

So using the 186.06 drivers solved the problem for you? I just reformatted my computer and have had no issues with the standby crash yet but I have not installed any of the needed nvidia drivers yet. Just gotta find the right driver that won't blow my laptop up now.

Yes. 186.06 solved my waking problems.
