Pc left for while resuting 0x0000009f DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE

Hi Guys

A pc here has rebooted itself twice in the last 2 days with a BSOD showiing 0x0000009f DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE

Its a brand new build onf windows 7 64

Now from what i understand this happens when the pc has been left alone for a while possibly entering SLEEP mode or hibernating. Something that may be causing this is a PS3 controller that we use for testing.
