Windows 7: Windows 7 crashing in sleep mode

There seem to be three symptoms, but they only happen when coming out of sleep mode:

1-BSOD - this seemed to stop after I dusted the machine out.

2-video card doesn't seem to turn on after coming out of sleep mode - this seemed to stop after I dusted the machine out, but seems to be happening again, with the only change being that a week has gone by, and that Thursday night I did a System Restore.

3-on reboot after #1 or #2 error, I get a "Restoring Windows session" screen, then it goes to a black screen, and just sits there. If I push power again, it reboots, then takes me to a screen asking if I want to book into safe mode, or continue system restore and delete corrupt records. If I do that, it deletes a bunch of records, then loads into Windows. This is also associated with being told the file system is corrupt.

But when I run scan disk and check disk afterwards, whether simple or deep, once I'm in Windows, it doesn't find any problems with either hard drive.

This also went away after dusting the machine out, but now seems to have returned, with the only change being that a week has gone by, and that Thursday night I did a System Restore.

I ran the BSOD reporting tool again, and I don't *think* the system has generated any new DMP files. Seems like the most recent one was Feb 25, which is the one I uploaded earlier in the thread.

I ran Furmark Burn-in test (it doesn't seem to give me an option for stability test...only burn-in and benchmark).

Ran it for 30 minutes. It it kept running, there were no artifacts, and the temperature seemed to level off at 72 degrees. It would go up to 73 then back down to 72...but it never went higher than 73, and there were no artifacts.

I ran SFC.exe /scannow, and Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations.
