New BSOD caused by audiodg.exe

Well, since re-activating the different power management settings I have been getting BSODs daily. The error is a clock_watchdog_timout_2_process error and the process name listed is audiodg.exe. I have disabled sound effects that my AC'97 Realtek card uses and still have these problems.
