On a computer that’s running Windows 8.1, you may receive PDC_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT error 0x14F_WCM when your computer resumes from sleep mode.
This problem occurs because the NDIS driver does not handle power state transition requests correctly when power management is disabled on a Teredo tunnel adapter or an IPHTTPS tunnel adapter.
This problem occurs because the power state transition fails on the Wi-Fi network adapter, which triggers a time-out in the monitoring thread.
