    DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE (9f) on boot, sleep, hibernate


    Looks like I can reboot ok but shutdown, sleep or hibernate is now causing BSOD. This all started about a week ago.
    I have updated a bunch of drivers and tried a few things to no avail. I was going to try to do th Win 8.1 refresh but I am getting a disk drive locked error. I would rather try to fix this than reinstall all my apps, plus who knows if a refresh would fix it. Please help if you can. I am a one man consulting company and this is really making life difficult and stressful. Thanks in advance.

    Hi Bigdave And Welcome to the forums ^_^,

    I have analyzed your older and newer dump files as well. Since, you have updated the Intel Rapid Storage Drivers I don't think that it is the root cause of the BSOD's even though all of the DUMP files (Newer and older) point towards the "iastorv.sys" . Below is a list of drivers which date back in the 2012. The drivers in RED must be updated with highest priority. :-

    RTKVHD64 RTKVHD64.sys Tue Dec 04 18:58:37 2012 :- Driver Reference Table
    TGBMPENUM.sys :- Please update or remove the TheGreenBow VPN Miniport Enumerator


    My most likely guess is that the Aicharger.sys is the root cause of this whole trouble as it is written also on the link given that it is the probable cause for many BSOD's. Please update or remove that driver first and then proceed further.

    Please let me know in case any further trouble is faced by you and I will be glad to help you out ^_^

    blueelvis,
    Thanks so much for diving into this.
    I got rid of AICharger.
    Looked for updates on intel.com for the Dynamic Platform and Thermal Framework but I did not find anything.

    Still crashes coming out of sleep.

    It happen to me when I'm using acer Iconia W501. Finally figure out teh display driver failure. Acer updated the driver and everything went perfect after that.

    Hi Bigdave,

    I analyzed your dump files but they are still pointing towards the Intel Storage Driver. Could you please run driver verifier according to these steps and post back with the new dump files?

    Also, one more thing I was thinking that, could you try using an older driver of Intel Rapid Storage ( a bit older but still compatible with Windows 8) and see if the issue still persists?

    Also, you could try the advice given above. Who knows, it might fix your problem as well?
