The only place that I know of where you might find it would be in Event Viewer:

right click My Computer>manage>event viewer system, application

The following may keep the blue screen up till you decide to reboot:

control panel>system>advanced>startup/recovery

uncheck auto reboot
check, write an event to system log (event viewer)
