Nvidia Kernel Driver Crashing when PC is Put to Sleep?

So just like the title said, my display driver crashes whenever I try to wake my computer from sleep mode. Normally I'll move my mouse around quite a bit and about 10-15 seconds later the screen will boot up and a notification in the bottom right hand corner will appear saying that the driver has crashed. I have an EVGA GTX 660 Superclocked 2GB edition, by the way. Also, I have done clean driver installs through GeForce Experience, and I am on the latest drivers. Could anyone help me fix this problem?

Was this happening with the older drivers?

Yes, they have happened with every driver that I have used so far, and I've had this GPU for about 7 months now but never got around to making a post. Just saying that because it isn't just these series of drivers, it's been all of them.

I hope it wont be a problem but since Kiwi didnt get any answer I will just say that you are not alone. I bought msi 650 ti boost twin frozr 2 weeks ago. There is no problems with gaming, stress testing or just web browsing. But every once in a while when I wake my PC from sleep it will take longer than usual few seconds, more like 10-15 seconds then monitor will turn on and pc will work as usual but when I check event viewer I see "driver stopped responding" alone or with event 14 nvlddmkm.

It wont happen everytime I wake it, sometimes I wake it without problems for whole day including sleep lasting 6 hours, and then 10th or 15th time it will do it again. It doesnt happen all the time so its hard to reproduce it. I tried 2 latest whql drivers and 314.22 all have it.

Maybe we can revive this thread and find more people with it so I wont be making new topic ?

I found this happens only when I have google chrome running before I put the PC to sleep.
So everytime I put my PC to sleep, I close any chrome windows open and check task manager and force close any chrome processes and put it to sleep. So far with this workaround, I didn't have issues waking from sleep. Anybody else noticed this before?

I'm on Nvidia GeForce GT640
