    BSOD error code 0x9F (driver power state failure) on Win 10 Creators


    Hi, my system is crashing, and it seems to be happening when entering or exiting sleep. I've used multiple programs to triple-check my drivers (Driver Boost, Intel driver update, Lenovo system scan). I've manually checked and updated the ones mentioned in forums (audio, camera, etc.). Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Dump files are attached along with the requested log file.

    Here are the most recent Who Crashed crash reports:

    Hi Merobi1,

    Welcome to 10forums :)

    Did you check Lenovo for wifi driver updates or reinstalled the latest one?

    Please use a restore point prior installing those programs, they are known for causing problems.

    Good to know for the future, axe0. Today I noticed that the monitor driver was out of date and was able to download a newer driver. Could an out of date monitor driver explain why the machine won't wake from sleep?

    Yes, outdated drivers causes incompatibility.

    I hope you downloaded the driver through Windows Update or from Lenovo directly.
