    Have you had any crashes since you turned off Fast Startup?

    If you have, and you have a wired connection available, turn off the wireless on the laptop. By a switch or in settings.
    At least you will know if that is the cause.

    No. No crashes since I turned off Fast Startup. And I replaced the old drivers for the wireless with new ones that were just issued a month ago. So it looks like Fast Startup may have been the culprit! I'll give it a couple days and of things continue to go well I will mark this solved.

    Keep in mind that fast startup and hibernation are very closely related.

    I know that. And I don't use hibernation.

    Glad to hear it's stable.

    Let us know if it is still stable in a couple of days.
    Mark this thread 'Solved' if it is.
