    Unexpected Shutdown

    I recently have had a rash of shurdowns when I leave my notebook on
    overnight. I am curently running Windows Vista Home Premium on a Toshiga
    notebook. WHen I leave it on overnight 60-70% of the time when I go to bring
    it out of logoff I get the meaasage "Windows have recovered from any
    unexpected shutdown, windows will notify when a solution is available". Has
    anybody else had this problem an if so, any solutions?

    Thanks in Advance

    Yes I had that a few times, but on different situations.( I left my laptop on sleep mode.) It did not happen during logon, and it was random. I had the same message too. Anyway, no apparent damage had been done, so I just "forget about it ". Sorry I have no solution for you. Just to tell you that you're not alone on this .

    Assuming you mean "bring it out of sleep" when you say "bring it out of
    logoff".

    Re: So far no solution offered ---so, I'll ask again

    I have silverlight installed and have not noticed any changes at all. But if
    i wanted to uninstall it, it's listed under my installed updates with all
    the rest. I even have a patch for crysis in there. Its wierd that you can't
    see any optional updates because I think I've installed 3 or 4 optionals and
    they are all there with the rest. Is there some setting that you may have
    changed? I know I'm not much help, sorry.

    Weird is right. There ARE others asking the same question as mine. We can't find them in " installed updates " file.Would you tell me what's your computer's configuration?
    Speaking of weird, your response showws up in " Unexpected shutdown " instead of "So far no solution offered ---". This is the 3rd time that happened to me.
    Anyway, thank you.

    Control Panel>Programs and Features>View Installed Updates should show you
    ALL installed updates.

    Re: Unexpected Shutdown

    I have the solution for these unexpected shut downs. At least for the ones who leave them on for more than 20 minutes without doing anything with it. You need to click start menu, then control panel, after that you click on system and maintenance, and then power options. After that you click on change power plan settings of your current power plan. At put the computer asleep you say never. Now here comes the important part.. you click on change advanced power settings, and you click on hard disk, and on turn off hard disk after, you see that it says only 20 minutes, so you need set it for a much longer time, this will do the trick and will help unexpected shut downs.
