Got involved helping a friend with an HP DV6000 series (AMD) that had a similar problem, but it used VISTA. I finally stopped the issue, but Im not exactly sure what was causing it as I messed with many things & the problem was hard to duplicate (ie, being a time dependent intermittent). Things I messed with which I suspect might have been involved were the Power setting Options (lowered these) & I cleaned the CPU Fan/Heatsink. (Battery & power adapter were eliminated as source of original problem.)
