BSOD - Won't sleep or crashes during sleep on Dell Latitude 6430u

Hi,
I have a Dell Latitude 6430u running windows 7 64.
When I first got it I worked through many BSOD issues and it was running fine for many many months.
Now recently it started not sleeping, waking up by itself during sleep and waking up from sleep with an unexpected crash message.
Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
Joe

Please enable Driver Verifier by following these instructions. A driver is most likely at fault that can't be identified.

Hi Thedoctor,
Thank you for the recommendation.
I ran it for about 12 hours and everything seemed normal (a bit slow on startup but otherwise normal).
Then I noticed that there were new drivers available for my graphics, wifi, and audio. There was also a new bios version available.
I disabled the verifier and updated all of the above.
Since then, about a day, everything is running fine.
Is this strategy ok or should I go back and run the verifier?
Thansk,
Joe

If you aren't getting any freezes or blue screens then leave driver verifier off. It's nice to see the problem is resolved for now. Leave the thread open for a few more days and if nothing happens mark the thread as solved.
