Exception 0xc0000006 is a page-in exception.  It means that Emacs
tried to access a page that was not present in RAM, and the system was
unable to load that page from the emacs.exe image on the USB disk.

This happens because the contents of the executable .exe file is read
into RAM on as-needed basis.  If, when your laptop awakens and Emacs
wakes up with it, the USB device driver is not yet up and running,
this is what will happen.  The fact that Outlook and Thunderbird lose
their files seems to confirm that this is what happens.

My advice to you would be to update the USB device drivers, and
perhaps replace the disk itself or the hub.
