I too have the same problem....BSOD with ntoskrnl.exe identified as the failing module. My system is Win7-64 SP1 Home Premium.

I have a WD MyBook 1TB external attached via FireWire. My guess is this is the device that is causing the failure. Is there any way to verify this?

My latest BSOD also occurred within abotu 15 min. of resuming from Sleep mode. My motherboard is ASUS P6T with 6GR RAM & Intel i7-920 CPU.

Win 7 Professional x64

I ditched FireWire and settled with USB which seems to work fine.
You could try the same and see if it causes problems during normal
