Windows 7 keeps shutting down

I just installed Windows 7 Professional 32bit Operating System on my computer and I will have it logged out but not shutdown when I leave work on Friday but when I return to work on Monday it is mysteriously shutdown. I have checked the power settings in the Control Panel and everything is set to never turn off. Iam not sure where to go or what to check from here....any help would be greatly appreciated

Nobody was in the building all weekend and then when I come back in on Monday it is shutdown, when all I did was log out on the previous Friday, it only happens on the weekend, it doesnt happen on like say Monday to Tuesday.

i wonder if this will help? , maybe not but you could try it as a workaround , set windows so it cant be shut down when no one is logged in. I realise no one is physically shutting down the pc but it could be worth a go
