Vista 64 goes to sleep or coma while on the web using various bit torrent clients. Always requires a hard reboot. Happens even at night when unattended. Goes in spurts, OK for a couple of weeks and then quite often. Flashget is the worst, tried just about all the bit torrent clients available. Something has to present a conflict or it has something to do withh ATT Dsl (maybe). Had a lot of tcpip.sys errors in event viewer. There are ways to patch this but it is not something I want to do. I would just like to prevent these errors, if they really precipitated the coma.
Here is my machine, in a Danger Den air case.

Maybe somebody has some ideas. Already did a fresh install some time ago. Do regular system maintenance such as defragging, registry cleaning, disk scanning and so on. Had Vista 32 bit on the machine some time ago but I can't remember if the condition persisted then. Might have to go back to that just to check.
