Hmm...I wonder if the hotfix for large SATA disks not waking up quickly enough may help here.

You receive various Stop error messages in Windows 7 or in Windows Server 2008 R2 when you try to resume a computer that has a large SATA hard disk

Type device manager in search. Once there look for any yellow markers, indicating problem with cards or drivers.

"richc46 Type device manager in search. Once there look for any yellow markers, indicating problem with cards or drivers."

Only device indicating any problems is my networked wireless printer (whose driver has always been slightly quirky on my laptop with Windows 7). No problems indicated elsewhere, however, obviously the only time I can check this is when I am able to login to windows (obviously when the problem is not manifesting).

I initially assumed that my account must be corrupted, however, the fact that a reboot solves the problem (at least temporarily) seems to refute that. I have no clue where to start to try and resolve this. I'm waiting to see if the problem manifests with any of the other Administrator accounts to see if it is restricted to this one account. Thanks for all the suggestions though! Keep them coming folks. They are all appreciated.

System File Check Results

Scan Complete: "Windows Resource Protection did not find any integrity violations."

The mystery continues!

I would give this advice as the solution for most problems, but in your case you may transfer the problem from the old to the new account.
but
In search type windows easy transfer, everything except programs can be transferred to a finger drive and then to a new account of OS
Give it a try as a test. Even desktop is transferred, all settings etc.

The last time I had this issue was caused by Zonealarm. After ZA has finished learning mode, use will be asked to switch to some optional mode, this is where the problem starts. I let it continue to learn indefinitely and not problem after that.

Thanks Rich. I'll give that a try and see if the problem migrates too or not. Worth a try.
