I just realized that the "System Preferences -> Energy Savings" option you're referring about is a MacOS feature, not a Windows one: that's why I wasn't able to find it. Right now, Leopard is not installed in my system, so I guess I have to reinstall it. Not sure if changing that option in Leopard will have any impact on Windows behavior, unless that option does some tricky low-level hardware trick.

It is not possible on Windows to uninstall/disable the HD Intel Graphics, just because it doesn't show up in the Device Manager, where I just can see the "AMD Radeon HD 6490M". Even reinstalling the BootCamp drivers leads to an installation error mentioning an "Unidentified Driver" which is "Unplugged" and which was not possible to install the drivers for. I guess this mysterious device is the HD Intel Graphics, which is in my laptop but seems to be totally unreachable.

I cannot even access the BIOS, because I don't think that it exists for Apple computers. I will come up with further results, if I can find anything.
What i meant is Open Firmware,if ur apple use editable Open Firmware,check the possibility.
I dont know if is there any firmware update to fix things.
I found that if you want to give it a try http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-13727_7-20004619-263.html
Click that Download gfxCardStatus from the developer's website, it's free!
I dont have mac book so i cant test it for you,sorry.
Found and that http://www.lancelhoff.com/switching-...s-macbook-pro/
But you may need the leopard.
Btw take a look in here -Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Display\Screen Resolution-Advanced Settings-Adapter,is there only the amd?

MS Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1
 
 

So, finally I'm here after a couple of days (it has been weekend) spent formatting and reinstalling everything. Indeed, I had to reinstall Leopard from scratch, re-assing the partitions and then reinstall Windows again with BootCamp, but right now the problem has been fixed. This time I kept the Mac OS partition without changing anything, like the 128 unallocated space that Mac OS's Disk Utility leaves between the Mac OS and the Windows partitions... I feel that playing too much with partitions has been the problem in my case.

Moreover, I even disabled the "Automatic graphic switching" in "System Preferences -> Energy Savings" in Leopard. That could have helped too.

Still now I'm not able to find my HD Intel Graphics, still now the BootCamp installation fails when installing that driver, and still now the AMD is the only card shown in "Control Panel -> All Control Panel Items -> Display -> Adjust Resolution -> Advanced Settings -> Adapter". So maybe there's something wrong with that card on my system: I could even think that it's somehow malfunctioning, but I didn't try it on Leopard.

Since I don't care about Leopard at all, the important thing is that right now my laptop doesn't crash anymore while recovering from sleep, so for anyone in the future which will have this same issue, the hint is not to touch Mac OS partitions when installing windows, because my experience is that you can make a mess in that way

Thank you panais for your support!

Solution

The problem is under certain configurations the discrete graphics device (AMD radeon in my case) and the Intel GPU driver will conflict with each other and cause a crash in idgkmd32.sys. The Intel device would show up mysteriously after the system wakes from sleep. This problem has plagued my Windows system system since I purchased my iMac in 2011 with a Windows 7 installation and it persisted all the way to Windows 8.1.

The solution is to "completely" uninstall the Intel Graphics driver! Here is how to do it:
1. Go to the Control Panel.
2. Go to System and Security
3. Go To System
4. On the left pane go to Device Manager
5. In the Device Manager's menu select View and Show Hidden Devices
6. Go to Display Adapters you should see Intel HD Graphics (looks transparent)
7. Right Click on Intel HD Graphics and select Uninstall
*8. Make sure you click on "Delete the driver software for this device" (otherwise it will re-install itself).
9. Click OK and the issue should be resolved.

* Don't skip step 8!
