"Dump after return from D3 after cmd" on Surface Go's

Tyler Montney 11 Reputation points

Got about 100k of these events over the last 30 days from 4 Surface Go's (Gen 2). Some are on AX200's driver version and others (which is the latest). All Windows 10 20H2. I'm assuming it's doing a memory dump after waking. What is causing this? Granted, I haven't heard any user complaints, but some search results indicate sleep issues. I don't want to suppress the events without first investigating.

(The ones on have the latest firmware and Windows Update doesn't list any drivers. Not sure how it gets in this state.)
