    driver_power_state_failure


    Hello,

    I have a Windows 8 Laptop which is only about 3 months old now. Recently, when I want to restart my laptop, the Restarting takes too long and it stucks with the Restarting... screen for about 5 minutes then a window will appear, I think it is BSOD but it's kind of a friendly one. It states that this laptop encounters an error and it begins to collect the info of the problem and at the bottom I can see that it asks me to find more details on this error :

    DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE

    So far I haven't find a single solution for this.

    FYI, I restart my laptop because when I plug in my pendrive/iPod usb charger/mouse, it can't detect it. For instance just now I plug in my iPod charger but it's not even charging. Then when I tried my pendrive, I can't find it on My Computer. So I restart it and there we go, a long Restarting process and a BSOD again.

    This long restarting process occurs when my laptop can't detect any usb inserted. Other than that, it can restart fine. Need a solution for this.

    Btw, after I restart my laptop, all usb that I inserted are now working. But later on, sometimes it cannot detect it so have to restart agian.
