Everytime i shut down or hibernate my laptop (Dell XPS m1530, 3Gb, core2duo 2.2 8100) after using any of my usb devices i get a blue screen with 'driver_state_power_failure.
This happens each time and its truly annoying. i mean there must be some way of fixing this problem.
thanks in advance to all responses.

Have you updated your drivers and checked device manager for any reported issues?.

It could be a problem with the driver not responding when waking up from hibernate mode.

i have updated my system (windows update), ran checks (mcaffee scan and spybot) but the problem persists.

BSOD=blue screen of death, I think.

Have you definitely proven it only happens after using a usb device?

Have you looked at the Event log?
