Hey all!

First of all, the specs:
ASUS-G74SX 64-bit 16GB RAM Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-2670QM CPU @2.20GHZ Windows 7 Home Premium 2009, Service pack 1

Ok, so now a whole slew of issues.

First of all, and possibly most annoyingly, my laptop refuses to sleep. I click the button or select the option in the start menu and it turns off, waits 2 seconds (the power button doesnt even have time to dim) before it turns right back on immediatly. The cmd is giving me the following when im trying to check lastwake:

C:\Users\thebiggestblackestcock>powercfg -lastwake
Wake History Count - 1
Wake History [0]
Wake Source Count - 1
Wake Source [0]
Type: Fixed Feature
Power Button

So instead of putting to sleep I've been shutting the damn thing down every time since I can't leave it on for long periods of time either, since that leads into the second issue.

When I leave the laptop idle for a good periord of time, maybe twenty minutes to half an hour, the computer blue screens giving me the help code "CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED"

Afterwards, the computer restarts as is customary after a blue screen, at which point I get a black screen with a line of text saying: "Reboot and insert Boot device or Insert Boot Media in associated Boot device and press a key."

At this point, I just click the power and start it up again, works with no issues as long as I don't try put it to sleep or leave it alone for a while.

The computer seems to not BSOD if I have some sort of media playing, like a youtube video, like as long as it remains active it wont crash. In power settings I have the settings set to not sleep if plugged in ever, which it is.

Anyway, I'd appreciate any help I can get on this, it wasn't too big of an issue for a while but it's now starting to get on my nerves.
 
Have you run some good deep malware and virus checks, using more than one program? The issues you are having make me wonder if there is something unwanted on the laptop.

Also, you may want to try starting up in "Safe Mode" or "Safe Mode with Networking" and see if the problems persist. If they do not, you definitely need to find what is running, that can't run in "Safe Mode" that is causing the problem.

How to enter "Safe Mode" when booting the computer.

In Windows 8 and 10...

As your computer restarts, press F8 (possibly a few times) to enter "Safe Mode"

a. Press the "F4" key to Enable "Safe Mode".
(The computer will then start in "Safe Mode" with a minimal set of drivers and services.)

b. Press the "F5" key to Enable "Safe Mode" with Networking.
( Once "Safe Mode" with Networking starts, Windows is in Safe Mode, with additional network and services for accessing the Internet and other computers on your network.)

c. Press the "F6" key to Enable "Safe Mode" with Command Prompt.
(In "Safe Mode" with "Command Prompt" starts Windows in Safe Mode, with a Command Prompt window instead of the Windows interface. This option is mostly only used by IT professionals.)

Now sign in to the computer with your account name and password. (If you have one set.) When you are finished troubleshooting, you can exit "Safe Mode" restarting your computer.


In Windows 7/Vista/XP...

1. Immediately after turning on the computer, or restarting it (usually after you hear your computer beep), tap the F8 key, repeatedly, in 1 second intervals.

2. The computer will then display hardware information and run a memory test.

3. Next the "Advanced Boot Options" menu will appear.

4. In the "Advanced Boot Options" menu use the arrow keys to select "Safe Mode" or "Safe Mode with Networking" and press ENTER.
