PC BSOD's After Every Power Saving Shut-Down

First of all, here are my pc specs:

Intel core i5-4440 @ 3.1 GHz quad core 8GB RAM Windows 10 (64 bit) Graphics card - Nvidia GeForce GTX 770 System model - H81M-S2PV (Gigabyte) 1TB hard drive

Last year, a few months after finally upgrading to windows 10, upon booting up my PC I encountered a BSOD (I forgot the nature of the BSOD, but it was such that it had me stuck in a constant reboot loop). I tried fixing it in the BIOS settings but ended up servicing the PC at my local repair service. They ended up wiping my hard drive because that's apparently the only thing that would fix the problem in their eyes. I contacted another specialist in the meantime who said this wasn't necessary, but it was already too late. So I took my PC over to the other specialist who managed to recover my data but he did say my PC would probably slowly die over time as there might be a problem with the hard drive. However everything was running smoothly till about a few months ago, when i would encounter different BSOD screens upon booting up my PC. I tried everything to get rid of them, which solved the problem. However, everytime I leave my PC on for over 2 hours without using it, it switches off due to the power saving settings - I usually leave it on when i go to the gym so i can get right back on it - however when it switches off and I turn it back on, I am always met with a BSOD screen. The most common ones are Kernel related. My most recent one was "unexpected kernel mode trap"

The others are:

  • kernel security check failure
  • kernel data inpage error
  • kernel event ID 41 (which I believe could be the main issue)

My PC is just over 3 years old at this point.

The steps I used to troubleshoot this were: - running CCleaner and a bunch of other cleanup tools - updating all of my driver software (which got rid of the spontaneous BSODs) - scanning my PC for malware, fixing registry errors.

I am absolutely clueless as to what is actually wrong, I would greatly appreciate any help.
