Thanks for sharing this, i have the exact same problem, and the solution to uninstall the Samsung NVMe Drivers works.
Are you guys booting in UEFI Mode? Because i reinstalled Win10 in UEFI Mode, and had no issues before booting/working in Legacy/MBR Mode with the Samsung drivers. Sleep mode and wakeup were no problem there.

I have 3 samsung m.2 nvme drives installed on a Asus Hero IX, no standard ssds. 2 on the motherboard and one via pcie adaptor. Windows 18.09 build 17763.194 (current version as of december). With only one M.2 card installed, the system resumed from sleep and windows fast boot correctly. As soon as I added a second m.2 card, bsod (internal power error) on resume from sleep or fast boot using the current samsung nvme drivers 3.0). Uninstalled the samsung drivers and it fixed the issue. I spent a whole day troubling shooting and reinstalling windows and graphics drivers due to this error. Very maddening. SAMSUNG, please update your drivers or get with Microsoft and get a fix out. Current NVME drivers don't work properly when more than one is installed and NO I'm not going to try and download an old version on windows and do another reinstall and try to block windows updates.. Very angry as I just bought a 970 1tb pro... Hopefully this helps anyone else having this issue.

I'd like to reiterate that I have experienced the SAME EXACT ISSUE with 2 950 Pro's and 1 970 Pro. I replaced an entire motherboard and CPU over this issue. CRAZY that it doesnt look like Samsung is aware of this issue (???)

Wow, that was quick. This was the trick. I'm back to a working system. Thank you very much! I wish you a marry x-mas and a happy new year!
Well that's not the right trick though since uninstalling the Samsung driver and using the Microsoft one results in a big performance degrade for our M2 SSD drive's...
What we need is an updated NVME driver from Samsung to fix the issue.

Yes, this is a Samsung issue. Microsoft NVME default driver works fine with M.2 960 while Samsung 2.2 driver does not. I havne't tried the latest Samsung driver, but it sounds like it produces the same behavior: BSOD upon resuming from sleep. I uninstalled the driver via Magician and everything is now great. Unfortunately, in the process I had to reinstall video driver and printer driver, and bought a new USB hub in hopes of ferreting out the issue.

Since it appears that Samsung/Microsoft are not coming up with a fix any time soon. I have a couple of Samsung M.2 960's installed on ASRock Z97 Extreme6 MB's using the Samsung 2.1 driver. No issues that I am aware of with W10 1809. Will the Samsung NVMe driver 2.1 work with the 970? Is it any better that the default Microsoft driver?
