Windows XP SP2 Blue Screen of Death ONLY in Morning!

One of my users has a Sony Vaio Laptop and has suddenly started getting the BSOD every morning when he comes in. He stays logged into our Exchange server but has no apps open and leaves it this way overnight. When he comes in the next morning, he moves his mouse to bring it out of screensaver mode, enters his password, briefly sees his Windows session, then receives the BSOD (screenshot attached). It does not happen at any other time during the day, and he does leave it sit frequently throughout the day while doing other things. I've updated all drivers, run checkdisk (no errors), ran antivirus and spyware, turned off all power management (on laptop and NIC card) and still have the same problem. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Go to C:\Windows\Minidump folder and delete all the files there. It should be fine.

I clicked attach file and attached the file. What am I missing??? Never mind, I see that a dmp file is not one of the allowed files. I tried zipping it but it wouldn't accept that file, either, so I modified the extension to txt, so you'll need to change it back to dmp. Thanks.

Is this all it shows? I have had this driver installed for a long time. I can try reinstalling it I guess.

No, I was only looking for your opinion of what it showed that could be causing the BSOD.

I updated the driver for the bluetooth mouse and still receive the bsod each morning. I also tried turning off screensaver. The only thing that seems to work is to log the computer off--if he stays logged in, he is assured the bsod the next morning. I'll keep plugging away at this, but obviously this is not a quick and easy fix. Thanks to nobus for trying.

No, thanks. Been there, done that. Don't want to have to do it again for a once-a-day bsod. I'll figure it out!
