Since a few months were experiencing that Windows 10 or even Windows 11 workstations freezes and eventually BSOD after connecting to a Microsoft Wireless Display adapter. Not all workstations experience the same. Some of them just freeze and a hard reset is needed, others just freeze and show a BSOD with a very common DRIVER_POWER_STATE_FAILURE.

After extensive testing and a lot of expected and unexpected freezes and BSOD we found out that it might be the Intel Wireless driver according to this article. We created an Ivanti Automation job to rollback the Intel Wireless drivers to a more stable version 22.110 and it solves some of the issues but not all. We furthermore found out that changing the 802.11n/ac/ax Wireless Mode value to 802.11n improves stability (image below).

Please feel free to comment and help us with a better solution!
