Dell latitude d630 shuts off randomly

Hello all,

I have an issue with this older laptop I would like to use more.

It appears that whenever I fresh install Windows 7 on it and leave it on overnight, it is off when I wake up in the morning. I don't know why it does this..

I don't believe it is overheating because I leave it on for several hours in the day and it stays on just fine, but when I go to bed it turns off. My power settings are for it to stay on all day as well, unless I prompt it to turn off. I do not have any viruses either as I've done a fresh install.

I have ran my diagnostic test and everything went fine and now I'm doing additional memory tests.

I'm totally lost here..

Have a look at your power settings options.

Here is a tutorial that might help:
Shut Down - View Details of Last Shutdown of Computer

Some programs such as backup programs can be set to do a shutdown after running a backup.
Do you have any scheduled programs that might be set to do a shutdown ?

No I do not have any programs, I just fresh installed Windows 7 and haven't put on a single program yet.

Go to the screen where you see the Balanced (recommended) plan and click on the link named Change plan settings. You might want to select Never when Plugged in for all three settings.

If you are going to close the lid on the laptop, then click on the link named Change advanced power settings. Scroll down until you find Power buttons and lid. Expand that setting and set as desired.

Those are the settings that I see. Your mileage may vary.

Ok no such luck it still powered off.

I removed the battery because I thought that could've been it but no such luck. Battery or no battery it still turns off..

Hi,
Not a good thing to do on a laptop but you could disable hibernation temporarily making sure you're connected via wired power

Click Start and type in the search box
cmd
Right click the suggestion and select Run as administrator
Type in command prompt
powercfg -h off
Press the Enter key
Then type
exit
Then the Enter key and the cmd window will close.

If it doesn't "shutdown" then repeat above and instead use
powercfg -h on
