    NUC5I3RYH: Win 8.1 x64 crashes after entering sleep mode


      I have been seeing this issue since updating to latest BIOS Version 0350 - RYBDWi35.86A.0350.2015.0812.1722 and/or the latest graphics and/or bluetooth and/or wireless drivers. Following happens approx. once a week:


      1. Put NUC into sleep mode and wait at least 10 minutes.

      2. Try to resume (keyboard strike) -> this doesn't work, as Windows has crashed.

      3. Power on NUC and check system event log -> "13.11.2015 20:53:56" (as an example) is the time stamp of entering slep mode (next event is the powering on).

      4. Using WinDbg load and analyze the crash dump file:


      Debug session time: Fri Nov 13 20:58:56.147 2015 (Note: This is exactly 5 minutes after entering sleep mode).

      According to Microsoft, the usbhub3.sys driver is not causing the problem. One of the devices connected to the USB3 HUB or its driver is causing the problem.


      The only connected external device is a keyboard. I suspect the Intel bluetooth module (part of the wireless card) or its driver (version 17.1.1532.1813) causing the problem. It seems that Windows tries to enter the sleep mode for exactly 5 minutes and then crashes due to A driver has failed to complete a power IRP within a specific time.
