it appears there are 3 different problems. Looks like there is a issue with power management, wifi driver(s), and one other one. I would try and see if you can update the drivers from your motherboard manufacturer for the power management; and see if you can find out what brand your wireless card or access is and go to the site for that and see if you can get some updated drivers for it.
