[Openvpn-users] DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE on win2K SBS

Title: DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE on win2K SBS

I have a DELL PowerEdge 2600 running win 2K Small Business Server.  Since installation of OpenVPN, a restart of the system results in the dreaded blue screen with the message

        STOP 0x0000009F DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE

A search at DELL points to the following Microsoft KB article http://support.microsoft.com/kb/q246243/ that states

CAUSE
This behavior occurs when drivers do not handle power state transition requests properly. The error message most often occurs during one of the following actions:

• Shutting down
• Suspending or resuming from Standby mode
• Suspending or resuming from Hibernate mode

I haven't found any reference to this message in the OpenVPN mailing however I am assuming it is OpenVPN related since it started after installation.  Has anybody seen this or are there any settings on the TAP-Win32 driver to avoid this problem?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Paul
