Windows 7: BSOD 0x9f when computer enters sleep mode

BSOD 0x9f when computer enters sleep mode

Hey everyone,

I've had this Dell Studio 17 laptop for a few years now, and have ran into a few problems in the past. However, in the past few weeks, the computer seems to blue screen almost every time I close the lid and it enters sleep mode. This has not happened at all while the computer itself has been running.

Here is the minidump file from this morning. All of the 8-10 minidumps since 12/11 seem to point to "ntkrnlmp.exe", if I'm reading that correctly. What do you guys think is the problem?


A driver has failed to complete a power IRP within a specific time (usually 10 minutes).
Arg1: 0000000000000004, The power transition timed out waiting to synchronize with the Pnp
Arg2: 0000000000000258, Timeout in seconds.
Arg3: fffffa8003d57b50, The thread currently holding on to the Pnp lock.
Arg4: fffff80000b9c510, nt!TRIAGE_9F_PNP on Win7

I may have found a solution. It may have to do with the fact that my computer is hosting a bluetooth network, and my iPhone may be trying to connect while the laptop is in sleep mode. I'm not sure if this is the case, but I will post if I've found any results.
