    Windows 10 crashes during sleep if SonicWall Global VPN is connected

    I used to run on Windows 8.1 Pro, and had various trouble with SonicWall Global.

    Once I installed Windows 10, the VPN stopped working, and I eventually got it working again by installing the network adapter manually per this thread (add legacy hardware)


    However, after that, I got the ndis.sys blue screen when I let my computer go to sleep WHILE the VPN is running. This was never an issue before. I don't get a blue screen if the computer sleeps with the VPN off or disconnected.

    Before it is suggested, I can't work with out SonicWall unfortunately. It is what my office uses for whatever reason.

    Hi davidwhitehill,

    Welcome to the 10forums.

    The problem is that a driver from the VPN is extremely old.
    It is the reason why it is not compatible with windows 10, updating might help.

    Also, there are problems with the sleep function of windows 10.
    It is better to not use the sleep function until Microsoft fixes it.

    Please disable every startup item in taskmanager except for your AV/AM.
    The startup items could interfere with the boot process giving you a lot of trouble.
