desktop gadgets crashes and rebooting when computer is "asleep"

windows desktop gadgets keeps crashing over and over.

also, i'd started using my "green power" settings on my motherboard just for kicks cuz id never even tried them before. when my computer would go to sleep after an hour id have to log back in (which i shouldnt with the way i have it) and id get an error report window saying windows had recovered from an unexpected error. i stopped using the green power settings and it seems to have stopped, but im not entirely sure. i just turned the power save settings off this morning.

ill include the bsod dump files cuz desktop gadgets is still crashing even while im gaming and i just want to make sure my system is ok.

system specs are up to date. system is about 3 years old now
