Windows 7: Win 7 crashes and reboots while sleeping

Win 7 crashes and reboots while sleeping

I have an Asus Eee Laptop PC with Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit which very often crashes and reboots while it is sleeping (lid closed), but never while running. When I open the lid again the system is back in windows and is showing the sort of "auto search" for solutions but it never finds any.

Any ideas?

The system is probably crashing while going back into sleep mode or while waking due to a program's wake timer. Please follow the to provide us with application, system, and crash logs so we may sort it out.

Ofc, here it is.

It is the original OS system, never reinstalled (OEM)

Since these type of crashes are usually network adapter related, I suspect Norton is the culprit. Please uninstall Norton using the Norton Removal Tool and replace with Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows to run with Windows firewall, at least for testing.

Did removing Norton provide stability?
