Windows 7: Unexpected Shutdown (with BSOD) in Sleep Mode???

Okay well, it's happened again without the computer hibernating or sleeping and while I was actually on it. The plot thickens... I'm going to back up all of my data and make a list of programs etc. and then run the driver verifier, or restore the system to Factory if necessary (I really, really hope not).

Does anybody know if BitTorrent could cause this? It's been open and running every time this has happened... and the program has been acting screwy lately, freezing up and not wanting to respond or be shut down. Please let me know, or tell me how I can check into that.

Thanks!

I tried to run Driver Verifier but it did nothing... it said I needed to restart, I told it "OK" and it didn't do anything, so I manually restarted and it just booted up as usual, without it doing anything for the driver verification. I've tried it twice now, and nothing happened either time.

What's the next step? Repair install, factory install, or?

Keep running your system normally, Verifier is almost certainly enabled. If you want to make sure, open a command prompt and enter verifier /query.

OK, I did that and it opened another CMD and displayed a fast running block of text, but disappeared. How am I supposed to know if it found bad drivers etc?

Alright, I had a hunch it was BitTorrent and after some sniffing around on Google my suspicions have been confirmed. It's bandwidth related... the system thinks that when the bandwidth gets astronomically high, or has a high demand put on it (which shouldn't be a problem with the fastest FiOS but I digress), that the system itself is in danger and causes a "false" BSOD episode and shuts down immediately, much like when things get too hot internally. It's also tied to the RAM and CPU usage somehow... that's what ultimately causes the BSOD, as they drop off suddenly in response to the bandwidth demands and, I would imagine, make the system think it's freaking out somehow.

There isn't any information on how to correct this error out there so I'll just have to deal with it while I'm using the program and end the process immediately after I'm done with it to stop it from resulting in this BSOD, stop seeding Torrents, or just stop using Torrents altogether.

This bytes!

Just want to update, for anyone else experiencing this problem...

I never had it resolved, however I simply use my physically connected XP Desktop to handle Torrents and it does not experience this issue with BSODs, unexpected shutdowns or anything else.

The issue only presents with wireless connections, not through physical connections however. So for those of you with mobile PC's like me experiencing this problem, hook an Ethernet cord to your wireless router, plug it in to the Notebook's port and then turn OFF the wireless signals until your Torrent is done and you WON'T experience BSODs. Then turn it back on and disconnect the Ethernet cord.

Nothing else for it than what I've said, until or unless BitTorrent etc. fixes their software for wireless users.

Hope this helped somebody!

Alright, thanks for reporting back! I'm glad you're able to work around it, at least.
