My computer consistently blue screens (driver_power_state_failure) about 2 minutes after I power it up and login. After the driver_power_state_failure, the computer reboots and I seem to be fine until the computer has to sleep/hibernate. Upon waking (or powering on), I get the BSOD again. Please see attached zip of c:\windows\minidump.  I can't seem to find the driver that needs updating -- I have been trying and updated about 10 drivers. I will be very grateful to whoever can find the problem since this is really bothering me! I do have a 2TB Seagate External HDD attached via USB 3.0. Here are my computer specs:
