T400s crashes at powerdown (reboot, sleep, hibernate)

I have a unstable Lenovo Thinkpad T400s on Win7 and SSD. It has a ISCSI disk on a LAN network, and an external esata disk.  Now days it keeps crashing a few times a day.  Luckily, seldom when I am working.  More typically crashes happen when I put it to sleep mode, or leave the computer unantended for some time, or reboot.  I am doing some heavy text processing (600 page word document with illustrations) and heavy statistical work. But currently, these are seldom affected, even if they do some quite disk intensive operations.
I have tried updating all drivers. No help
Everytime I boot, the system hangs during shutdown.

I have run full memory test from both Lenovo and Windows. both OK.
I have run a full Lenovo System check. Everything OK.  
Device manager alert: Disabled device: Intel Wifi Link 5100

I have run the WinDbg to establish what actually happens. If I am reading this info right, it is a memory corruption, but I cannot tell if it is a software or hardware problem.

Re: T400s crashes at powerdown (reboot, sleep, hibernate)

I was not precise above. The system does not hang up every time I boot, more like 9 times out of 10.

I have also run the sfc /scannow
which verified the system files.

Does safe mode boot better?

Re: T400s crashes at powerdown (reboot, sleep, hibernate)

Do you have the ability to swap RAM around?
Test with 1 piece out, then the other.
Or test with another stick of RAM altogether?

Re: T400s crashes at powerdown (reboot, sleep, hibernate)

I have finally managed to find out that the crashes are connected to the external esata disk (WD Studio). If this is plugged in, crashes do happen. If it is unplagged, no more crashes.
