    Uninstall the GPU driver and try again, if it doesn't happen again then it's the drivers fault.

    I'm not sure what exactly could be the problem. If removing the battery fixes the issue it could be something to do with power management...
    The 8560w doesn't officially support Windows 8 yet...it could be chipset drivers, it could be anything. It's best if you wait for all the drivers for Win 8 to be ready.
    It takes a bit longer for workstations to be ready for new OS due to extensive driver testing etc.

    You need to remember that this is a Workstation, it's oriented towards stability. Not having tested and certified drivers defeats the whole point of it.

    Yes it will take a bit longer but I'm sure that Windows 8 will eventually be fully supported.

    I´m running Win 8 Enterprise 64bit for months now without any stability problems or errors.
