    Win 8.1 Asus Laptop Powers Off With No Notice

    System appears to power off (sleep?) without notice.

    I found this same problem in many posts about Asus laptops running Windows 8/8.1 and was not able to identify a solution. It does not appear to be an overheating problem, as it sometimes happens shortly after power on or waking from sleep mode.

    It almost seems like an unplanned sleep mode because most of the time not much information is lost.

    Logs in ZIP file and memory dumps in ZIP file - both attached, per forum instructions.

    Thanks in advance for your assistance.

    Update drivers highlighted in red and your Atheros Wi-Fi driver since that is the most likely the cause of the crash.

    Thanks for the quick and detailed assessment.

    I updated the Atheros Wi-Fi driver.

    I updated the entire ATK package - which appears to resolve the two ATK outdated drivers.

    And, I uninstalled the Asus Charger utility - which appears to resolve the charger outdated driver.

    Hopefully, this will do it!

    I'll follow-up in several days with the final success story...
