I've been having this problem for quite a while (months even), whereby my PC fails to go to sleep and shuts down (after lengthy hdd activity). On powering up again the next morning, I am told the computer has Blue Screened. I've had nothing but trouble with sleep in Windows 7. I fixed an issue last year with ATI drivers
, and a common bug in Windows 7 not going to sleep at all by altering some settings in the power config.
This current issue has probably been going on at least since May, possibly earlier. Nothing has changed in my hardware setup since then.
Here are the zipped files. I hope someone can help. For some reason the windows debug tools take far too long for me to download from the microsoft site.
Thanks in advance
