My computer randomly powered off after exiting sleep mode. It was in sleep most of the night because Steam was downloading a new game and then I went to wake it up and there was no picture and then it shut off. Fast start is off and this is the first proper problem I've had since clean installing

EDIT: Seem to spend more time searching how to fix Windows 8 than actually using it :(

You might have mis configured the Hibernation feature of Windows 8. You will need to fix that. Then, you will not have this issue.

I'll have a look, although it's worked perfectly up until today and the only thing I changed was fast start

EDIT: Hibernate is set to never, but hybrid sleep is on and I know shutdown was causing my Error 41s before I turned it off
