Windows 7: Recovering from unexpected shutdown

Windows 7 64-bit
Recovering from unexpected shutdown

I've been experiencing a problem that others have also discussed on here -- leaving the machine idle for a few hours and returning to find that it has shut itself down. Upon restarting, windows 7 displays a "Your computer has recovered from an unexpected shutdown" message. I know absolutely nothing about debugging, so if anyone on here can tell me what to do with the files in the /minidump folder I would be greatly appreciative. Or, if someone can make sense of the memory dump files for me, that would be great too.

If other system or crash information would be required to analyze my problem, I can attempt to provide that as well.
