I've been getting a TON of BSODs which according to BlueScreenView are being caused by ntoskrnl.exe. This seems to happen whenever the computer goes idle for too long/sleeps, never when I'm actively using it. Also, once the computer restarts it will go idle again eventually, which causes multiple BSODs at night if I forget to shut it off. I haven't tinkered with the computer in terms of upgrades or hardware at all, and I have no idea how to, so if your solution involves dismantling of some kind please link to an article letting me know how.
I'm attaching the minidumps as well. If you need any more, let me know. Thank you guys so much I've just been at my wit's end over this!
EDIT: I just checked over a bunch of the .dmp files in BlueScreenView, and I am also occasionally getting errors for NETwNs64.sys, Sftfslh.sys, and tcpip.sys, always with the ntoskkrnl.exe error. For the first error, I am updating my Intel driver as we speak. Haven't gotten to the other two yet but if you have suggestions let me know.

Ok, so my laptop restarted and obviously it couldn't connect to the internet, so it automatically downloaded the needed driver by itself, one called Intel Wifi Link 1000 BGN #2. I think I downloaded the wrong driver from the Intel site, maybe? I do notice that this driver it downloaded has the same driver version # as before I tried to update it, which is 126.96.36.199
