    Sometimes get "Driver Power State Failure" after login


    Hey guys, as thread title states, I sometimes get "Driver Power State Failure" after logging into Windows 8 (not 8.1).

    I believe it is my Sierra Wireless 760S Aircard 4G modem causing the issue but I'm not entirely sure, and sometimes it doesn't detect it until I unplug and reconnect the usb cable after booting.



    Any help greatly appreciated.

    Cheers

    In the "Device Manager", find that device, look under "Properties / Power management " and uncheck " Allow this computer to turn off
    this device to save power"

    The driver doesn't seemto support "power management". Hmm..

    EDIT: I also tried all the USB controllers and they were all unchecked.
