Hi guys, I hope you can help. I have been having these BSODs or hangs ever since I installed (fresh) Windows 8 on this 4-year-old laptop. It nearly always happens as I try to come out of sleep that's lasted for more than some tens of minutes. It sometimes happens when I come out of hibernarion, which is what I use normally, because of the sleep problems. Let's once out of 20-30 times. You can see it in the Event Logs as Kernel-Power critical events. It seems that the BSODs are associated with the Intel RAID drivers. I believe I am running the latest ones. I have also tried with older versions to no avail. The crash from today (6/15) is new: the mouse pointer actually froze and I had a DPC Watchdog Violation after a minute or so, for the first time as far as I know. Please let me know if there is anything else I should send you. I am having trouble uploading the attachment. I'll try in a reply.
