You’ve a computer running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2. Occasionally, the computer crashes after it runs for some time. Additionally, you receive a Stop error message on a blue screen. The Stop error message resembles following: STOP: 0x0000000A (parameter1, parameter2, parameter3, parameter4) | IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. Note: The four parameters in Stop error message may vary, depending on the configuration. Not all "STOP: 0x0000000A" error messages’re caused by this issue. “This issue occurs because Power Manager opens an Advanced local procedure call (ALPC) port. However, Power Manager closes another port instead of closing the ALPC port. Every time that a power request is made, a memory leak occurs. When the leaked memory usage accumulates to a certain level, the computer crashes,” explained Mirosoft in KB979444. A supported hotfix is available to address this issue.
