BSOD win7 64 after long sleep caused by dxgkrnl.sys

Hi Guys ,
I have been battling this issue for over 6M reading many posts and suggestion and went through updating my graphics drivers and then moving back to old ones then back to newest .
The strange thing is that it only happened after long sleeps (over 4-8 hours) .
It never happens in any other case only after resuming the computer from a long sleep .
I am attaching the files as stated in the rules .
Your help would be MOST appreciated!

Win7 64 , 16GB RAM , i7 3.4Ghz
