BSOD of death, possibly relating to power saving mode

Hi, I have a windows 7 x64 machine that seems to ritualistically crash when i run in power saving mode. The model is asus a53s, and crashing seems to be random, but always tied to when i run in asus power4gear batterysaver.

System specs
x64, original install, it's OEM, the hardware is six months old, and the original OS is installed.

I note you run McAfee.

McAfee is a frequent cause of BSOD's.
Suggest you remove and replace it with Microsoft Security Essentials AT LEAST TO TEST!

Though the most recent DMP file is from January, they all point to McAfee and are Related to NETwNs64.sys Wireless WiFi Link Driver from Intel Corporation

I would follow JMH'S suggestion and update the driver to the most recent. Yours is from 2010

Ok, will disable.

I didnt know mcaffee was a source of crashes like that. I know graphics and art programs, the antivirus that came with the machine, not so much.

Should I disable and test in both battery saver and entertainment mode?

Thanks!
