Computer wont stay running overnight

i left my computer running last night downloading 2 games though Steam, when i got up it was off, unexpected shutdown. This has been happening a lot and Ive been trying to fix it but not sure what causing it. i deleted all the logs before i walked away from computer before bed, no mini dump was created or in the LiveKernelReports\WATCHDOG folder. I'm lost on the cause and I'm not sure what i need to do.

you might try watching the temps could be thermal shutdown which isnt good
u might try useinghwmonitor to keep an eye on your temps
