A driver is causing an inconsistent power state.
There's seems to be a issue with some of the USB drivers, follow these steps:

Type: Device Manager
Expand USB Controllers
Uninstall driver (for every listed device)

The drivers should now be automatically reconfigured by Windows upon reboot.
If you are using any USB devices, then remove these from the USB ports (leave keyboard and mouse), and then update all the devices with the latest drivers, including the mouse and keyboard if applicable.

Turn off USB Suspension:

If you're experiencing random mouse lockups or failures, it could possibly be because
your computer is automatically turning off the power to a USB Root Hub:

Go to Control Panel > System > Hardware tab > and click on the "Device Manager" button.
In the Device Manager window, find the item/items labeled "Universal Serial Bus controllers."
Open it, and double-click the first item called "USB Root Hub."

In the USB Root Hub Properties dialog, click on the "Power Management" tab.
"Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" is checked by default. Uncheck this box, and click "OK."

Also please follow this tutorial:

Please update your Nvidia Driver to the latest version:

1. Download latest Nvidia Driver, choosing Option 2: Nividia Driver Download
2. Goto Start> Type: Device Manager
3. Expand Display Adapters
4. Right-Click "Driver Name", and Uninstall
5. Reboot your computer
6. Run Driver Sweeper
7. Reboot again
8. Install Downloaded Nividia Driver

Use Driver Sweeper to scan for any left over files from the old driver:

Clean Left over Files after Uninstalling

Tip   Tip
Create a System Restore point before starting.

Ensure you have all the latest Windows Updates installed also.

Post back any progress/observations

Just to expand upon Dave's answer,

We can see all the drivers associated with the physical or logical device which was blocking the IRP.

Your VMware USB monitor driver seems to be potentially outdated, I've seen this driver cause problems before over at Sysnative, I would check for any later version of the program from here - VMware Virtualization Support, Desktop and Datacenter Virtualization Product Downloads
