Windows 7: BSOD while idle or sleep

09 Jan 2015   #1

Windows 7 Home/Premium 64Bit
BSOD while idle or sleep

So, every time I leave my PC unattended/idle/screensaver or in sleep mode I will come back to it and it will either have the BSOD up or I will wiggle the mouse and my desktop will appear and then about 5 seconds later it BSOD's. Does anyone know what could be causing this issue, I can run the hell out of my PC playing games using Photoshop ect and no BSOD but as soon as the pc is doing nothing it decides to quit on it's self. Any help will be appreciated!
