I have gone through two power supplies trying to solve this: initially I had a Coolermaster eXtreme Power 500W power supply, which I replaced with an Antec Earthwatts 650W power supply thinking that it might be a PSU issue.
My computer is currently on a brand new hard drive as of last night, with a fresh copy of Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit installed. I updated the motherboard BIOS to the latest version, and I think the drivers are up to date.
Event Viewer shows Event ID 41, source Kernel Power, with a BugcheckCode 0, SleepInProgress false, and PowerButtonTimestamp 0.
Windows Memory Diagnostic showed no errors.
I'm at a loss and would appreciate any help. Thanks!

No DMP files included in upload try this method.
To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
To ensure minidumps are enabled:
Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
OK your way out.
Reboot if changes have been made.
