BSOD DRIVER POWER STATE FAILURE
I am using a Cambio W101 tablet with windows 10 21H1 and Firefox 93.0.
After getting the BSOD with the error message DRIVER POWER STATE FAILURE I followed the recommended suggestions like checking the drivers, removing the sleep mode, changing the power options.
I continue to get the BSOD only in one specific situation but frequently. It is when I use Libreoffice as my active window, while Firefox is inactive in the background. When I use either only Libreoffice or only Firefox as my active window nothing happens. There has also not been problems with other programs.
Does an inactive Firefox do something which triggers the BSOD?

You can check the Windows Event Viewer logs to see if there is more detail available about the BSOD.
which events should I look for? I found none which seems to have the least relevance to DRIVER POWER STATE FAILURE
Maybe check the timestamp as there shouldn't be that many events logged unless your Windows is that unstable that you get a lot of BSOD events.
There are hundreds of events. I do not know where to look nor what to look for - the event viewer has more than a dozen categories and hundreds of entries.
I was hoping that there is something to adjust in about:config
