Windows 7: win 7 won't wake up after sleep

12 Feb 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I am back with some issues still cropping up. I believe it is still network I/O issues, but can't point to any minidump files. Here's what is happening - waking up from sleep etc. is working well thus far, but frequently I am losing access to my NAS. It is a Lacie Ethernet Big Disk (I believe it has Embedded Windows XP on it). When I try to access the network drive windows explorer hangs. After that everything goes haywire - Outlook won't start. I can't even logoff or shutdown normally - it hangs. I have to do a reboot to get it back up again.

Where should I look for issues? Event error says the following: Critical Error - Event 41, Kernel-Power
Log Name: System
Source: Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-Power
Date: 2/12/2010 5:46:37 AM
Event ID: 41
Task Category: (63)
Level: Critical
Keywords: (2)
Computer: home-kali
The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

Any clues? Thanks!
