Your computer is probably going into hibernation or sleep mode when you leave it on too long. Go to the Control Panel, then Power Options. Select "Never" under Sleep Mode.

Also, you may not be conserving much battery power if it's a laptop you're using and it's shutting down randomly. Here are some tips on how to do that - http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Conserving-...

There is a chance its your PSU. When I built my dad's computer I put in a PSU that was to weak. Was getting random reboots and computer not turning on at all. Check your event viewer-windows logs-system tab.

You want to look at your system event viewer. Your event viewer is in your administrative tools. Then you want to click on the Windows logs tab on the left side of the window. Then click on the system tab. Look for a red error event in the top center window. Read the errors descriptions, and see if any of them say loss power.

i have checked that now and i found this

The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly

can this be something ?

Its the PSU. Your computer is pulling more watts then the PSU can put out. Same thing happen to my dad. I put a 600 watt corsair PSU in. It fix everything. The question is now what PSU you have running right now?

Your PSU looks ok. I guess you got a bad duck. I would change it out ASAP.
