Driver Power State Failure

    Driver Power State Failure

    I shut down my laptop as I usually do, but I was short in time, so I didn't watch it turn off. When I came back home a few hours later, I found it turned on, showing the lock screen. Apparently it had a BSOD while it was shutting down and then restared.
    I ran bluescreen view and it said it was a driver power state failure cause by ntoskrnl.exe, but I have no idea what to do to prevent it from happening again... It was the only time so far, but I had that same BSOD on another laptop and it was recurrent, a real pain in the ass... I don't want that to happen to this laptop too.

    I was hoping maybe you could help me figure out how fix that... thanks in advance!

    Win8.1Pro - Finally!!!

    Not much info here.

    I wonder about USB devices first - as there's traces of Windows USB drivers in the stack.
    In particular I'm suspicious of the Rainbow Tech/SafeNet USB Security Device - as it's driver (Sentinel64.sys) dates from 2008 and I've seen problems with these devices in the past.

    If I'm correct, uninstalling the software for this device and physically removing it from your system should stop the BSOD's.

    Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable! :

    If all of this doesn't stop the BSOD's, please run Driver Verifier according to these instructions: Driver Verifier Settings
