This happens consistently everyone time I've had the computer in sleep mode. It is a pretty fresh install and I know it didn't behave this way after I first installed it so some driver has since then messed it up. First of all, I don't know if this is a real "BSOD". I get the sad smiley and everything but the reboot goes really fast and all programs and windows are as before the reboot. Doesn't feel like a real reboot to me. Is this a feature of Windows 8 perhaps? I've searched for windows\memory.dmp and after windows\minidump , but neither exists. I've googled quite a bit and have tried several actions to try to activate the logging but to no success. Nothing is shown in the eventlog. I'm not sure if the information I've found is out of date or not so I'm not going to list the steps I've already tried for now. So, any suggestions on why I can't find a dump file or any trace from the BSOD? I just want a quick peek to try to figure out what's causing it.
