Problem has been resolved.
In the BIOS settings, under Intel SpeedStep, there are two options. 1) Automatic... which the descriptive states the OS will handle it; and 2) Disable... where the descriptive states the processor will handle it. I had it set to "automatic" (which was the default) making the wrong assumption and not wanting to "disable" Intel SpeedStep.
Well nothing ventured, nothing gained so I decided to apply the disable setting. For the last couple of days, with about 5 reboots, the error messages have ceased. So I guess we can close this issue.
