Windows 7: Shut Down - View Details of Last Shutdown of Computer

10 Jul 2016   #30

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Hello Brink, thanks for this tutorial and the great support you are providing to the community !

I was seeking to get an extract of all the times my laptop went to sleep. It doesn't appear in the "unplanned" shutdown (which much more appears to be tracing issues-related shutdowns if I understood it right). Can you help me with this ?

Besides, as this would make 3 types of computer stop (normal shutdown by user, unplanned/crash shutdown, and time/delayed shutdown) are there any other types of shutdown ? Any source at Microsoft that would list those ?

All the best !

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Hi All, I spent more time googling and browsing forums but without much accurate help. I however saw that some "Kernel" sources could be selected from the event viewer and went back to the tool.

When selecting Windows Logs > System > RightClick > Filter Current Logs... : Event sources : Kernel-Power I get exactly what I was looking for, including when the computer goes to sleep (after idle delay) and goes to hibernate (after sleep delay) ! :-)

My question wrt to all other kinds of shutdown still remains, of course ;-)

Hello AlterMind,

I'm glad you found what you were looking for.

Here's some more information about shutdown event tracker overview from Microsoft to help.

Hi Brink,

Thanks for this prompt response -- and the interesting link on MS TechNet!

I additionally discovered while further browsing the event viewer that the Event sources : Power-Troubleshooter would flag the wake-up after a sleep shutdown! This diverse and apparently poorly-consistent use of event sources tags is not help much in our endeavour... But as I learned a few things, I guess it's all nice and well, kind of ;-)

Take care.

"unexpected shutdown" message when computer did shut down properly
