Windows 7: Computer crashing after sleep/idle

26 Sep 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium (x64-based)
Computer crashing after sleep/idle


So I bought this Asus laptop back in January, and I still haven't seen it crash to this day - it always seem to happen when I walk away from the computer, leaving it idle for awhile - it always is just off, when I turn off, I get the unexpected shutdown screen, etc.

My OS: OEM Windows 7 Home Premium (x64-based)

The error that pops up gives the details: "Problem Event Name: BlueScreen"

I have attached all the BSOD required files. Anyone who could lend a hand to help fix this issue would be greatly appreciated, I just have no clue what's causing this!
