Type task scheduler. In task scheduler you can schedule any task

That or a batch file, and check Utorrent for shutdown switches. However, it would be easier to try a NAS box that can schedule torrents.

INTEL Core I7 920 Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium, 6GB DDR3 RAM. Computer was built by reputable dealer.
My computer shuts down at 23:59 every Saturday night. It must be a setting but I can't locate where it might be. I did look at Task Scheduler but can't see anything that "looks like" an automatic shutdown.

Can you help please?

Go to task scheduler and look for a task that starts at that time or a minute later. That task is probably defective and shutting you down.

If that does not work do a clean boot and see if it happens.

Thank you for your very prompt response.

I found these 4 items (attachment) that seem to be running at 1 am rather than midnight. But what if the DST setting is causing it to show an hour later? These are the only ones I saw.

When you say a "clean reboot" you're just saying to power down (after an orderly shutdown) and back up. Right? I have done that as well.

What would you suggest as the next step?

And thank you so much!

Kathy

I've found some more info but am not sure what to do next. The attachment is sorted in reverse time and date order. So note the highlighted "LOGOFF" event and the one right above it. The full source is "Microsoft Windows security auditing" so the next thing I'll do is try to find that.

First, the only time that task scheduler knows is computer time. Check the clock lower right to see if it is set properly.

Clean boot is just a process of removing some items from startup to see if it is the cause of a problem. Follow the bulletin carefully. Remove the items from startup. Then boot. If computer works as it should one of those startup items caused the problem.

Googled "Microsoft Windows security auditing event 4647" and it is listed as "user initiated logoff." Do you think the "user" could be the auditing software? Because I was just typing along when all of a sudden shutdown started. And ended by powering down the machine.

When I logged on again after a few minutes, IE told me that IE had an unexpected end (or something like that) and offered to open all the tabs that were still open at shutdown. So the logoff was really more like a power down than a shutdown.

Thanks,

Kathy

Hi, Sorry I just saw your reply.

OK, the date and time are good. I had checked that earlier as well.

I'll look at the bulletin (I didn't see the link but it's probably in your earlier post) and try that. But not until next Saturday night.

Thanks so much for your help!
