Driver Power State Failure BSOD

Hi all, I've been receiving a Driver Power State Failure BSOD after shutting down/restarting my machine since yesterday. I just installed the Windows 7 RC1. My shutdown is taking around 20 minutes before crashing with the BSOD. How do I find out what is causing the error and fix it? Should I post my minidump? Thanks.

Can you fill in your system specs please? What applications do you have installed?

Is there a quick way to take a snapshot of what my system specs are and the applications I have installed?

Don't know of a quick way, but if you fill in the hardware specs under your control panel, you won't need to do it again. As far as the software goes, please list things like antivirus software, any utilities you have running, cd burning software etc. Are you running native Win 7 drivers or have you installed drivers from the manufacturer of your system?

I'm not sure if this topic is still open but I have had two occurrences of the Driver_Power State_Failure BSOD. The most recent was while playing Spider Solitaire. I have read the post but I don't know how to retrieve the minidump file. I did a search then clicked on write minidump and the screen immediately goes away and I can't find the info to post.

I have run the Windows 7 upgrade advisor and all system requests passed. Please advise what I should try in order to post the minidump file. See my machine and system applications file.
