Hi all, first post. Well, my computer randomly powers off. This starts happening after my computer puts itself to sleep. This is the third time I've experienced this behavior on a fresh install (using 3 different hard drives so its not the disk). I usually disable sleep but I forgot (yet again). It seems from past experience, that from the first time my pc goes into sleep, the windows install is RUINED. If i can disable sleep right after installing windows (so sleep never runs), windows is fine and has no issues.
Ruined because it's going to power off at random. I dual boot with this PC, so I KNOW it's not a hardware issue. I have installed windows many many times and have only encountered this issue when the system goes into sleep. The second time I encountered this, I had accidentally put it into sleep when selecting reboot. It went to sleep and wouldnt wake up. When I rebooted, it was experiencing this exact issue. This time, it put itself into sleep, i woke it up and it went dead. I have rebooted 3 times and it comes back up fine each time but just randomly crashes. I thought it might be Silverlight but i just had it crash on me without Netflix open. Has anyone experienced this and is there a fix before I reinstall yet again?
