Why is this error popping up every other start up? How to stop it?

Every other time i start my desktop I get blue screen and DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE. Yet when I turn it on again or it restarts it acts like nothing happened, in device manager there is no yellow triangle or red boxes. Now the only thing I notice that's odd in all of this is that my Blu-Ray player on the times it crashes (before the PC blue screens and gives the error) does not blink, open/close tray, or read/write at all no matter what unless I turn off or hard restart my desktop.

My PC specs:
Operating system: Windows 8 pro
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3 rev. 4.0
CPU: AMD Phenom ii x4 955
Memory: 8gb 2x4gb corsair vengeance 1333MHz
Power supply: Corsair AX760 full modular
Storage:Seagate HDD 500gb Barracuda 7200rpm, Intel 530 SSD 240gb
GPUs: GTX 760x2 EVGA ACX superclocked in SLI (usually)
CPU cooler: Corsair H60i
CD/DVD/Blu-Ray drives: Asus BC-12B1ST Blu-Ray player
Extra fans: 2 blue led 120mm fans

So what do you think about the blu ray player? Think I should buy a new one to see if this one is faulty and causing the error?

    I had a weird issue like this with a disk drive a few days ago. I sorted it by opening the pc case to find that the reader wasn't connected to the motherboard properly so I pushed the cable right in the socket and then it worked properly and I never had an error ever since. This might be the same scenario for you.

    Hmm I'll try this out and report back.

    Well I purchased a new case while asking this question and lo and behold my sata cable was a hair off from being fully clicked in when I moved to the new case.
