Windows 7: Win 7 shuts down on it's own.

Win 7 shuts down on it's own.

Hello, I've been running Win & RC for a few days and seem to run into a ongoing problem. I think this is where I may want to start this thread.

Several times I have left win 7 running for a half hour or more (inactive) and it hibernates. If longer then 30 mins. I have to push soft reset, which wakes it up. However on 2 occasions I left it for several hours. It seemed to have shut the system completely down, again upon restart it went directly to Win 7 (running dual boot system w/ Win XP) and was herky. After a few minutes the screen became distorted and I had to preform a hard shutdown, as nothing would respond.

Any thoughts?

Are you getting any of the following:

a) Errors in Event Viewer.

b) Blue Screen of Death.

c) Memory dumps.

If so, can you post back with what they are and we'll go from there. Are you using native Win 7 graphics drivers or the ones from the manufacturer of your card?

Thats right. Does the problem still occur?

Is it a laptop or a desktop?
