Event 41 Kernel-Power Windows 7 Solved Assignment

Last couple months i've been having this issue, but i havent started looking into it until now. I have a dell XPS 13 9343.

The computer will randomly shut down, no warning, no nothing. It's not overheating because it would shut down even if im doing nothing on the computer and everything is closed. (completely random shutdowns actually)

Ive done all sorts of diagnostics to rule out things such as cpu, ram, hardrive etc.

The error im receiving is "Kernel-Power" Event Id 41, Task Category 63

Here are the details.

I should also mention that my power button isnt functioning, rarely does. The odd thing i found about the details is that there are no values for the bugcheckparameter. Could it be that my messed up button (which it sometimes will actuate and work, but VERY rarely) is the cause of this? could it be actuating on its own at random times because of the malfunction?

Furthermore, i did do powersupply stress tests but the computer didnt crash during those. not sure if i used a good program. if someone could recommend a good psu stress test program? But perhaps even a stress test wouldnt directly cause a bettery that has dying cells to crash?

Anyways, i would GREATLY appreciate the help in solving this issue. Im hoping its something as simple as changing the power button board/buying a new battery.

Thanks in advance.

Hey all. I have seen threads about this around, but none of them seem to fix the problem for me. My computer has recently started randomly shutting down. These are very hard shut downs, usually seeming like somebody pulled the plug. It happens between 1 and 2 hours after booting it back up. Using the event viewer it shows the problem is a "kernel-power 41" error.(will post the details below)
I will detail what I have done so far to try and fix the issue.

-reformatted the hard drive and installed a fresh version of windows 7 professional.
-installed the latest drivers for sound/chipset/video/etc.
-disabled the ATI sound driver leaving realtek HD driver on and vice versa
-ran memtest using both sticks of RAM, and then ran memtest, using one stick at a time, and then using each stick in seperate slots one at a time.
(while running memtest however the shutdowns come more quickly, usually in a matter of minutes)
