Hi,

I would suggest to start with http://www.resplendence.com/download/whocrashedSetup.exe, it's an excellent tool which will tell who crashed the machine.

In addition to my previous update, i just analysed the minidump (attached). Unfortunately there are few hotfixes for Windows7 but not for Windows 8. Please have a look at this link which details few things to check http://www.troubleshootwindows.com/windows-7/fix-stop-0x0000009f-driver-power-state-failure-in-windows-8-7/

Your dumps all point to bcmvw164. I assume that to be a driver, maybe for a broadcom NIC or something similar. So first check if you can update your drivers to the newest version. After that check the power settings of your PC, particularly for the NIC's. I would disable any power saving features they may have set currently.
