Have you checked your power settings in control panel ? My Vista desktop machine came with settings to shut off hard drives after 30 minutes of no activity.

Thanks for that JimJoe, I Have my hard drive to switch off after 45 minites and sleep is set to 'never', After a few days of the computer turning off at random, today has been fine (Up to now)... I know Vista has the Events log and Performance and reliability programs but I would'nt even know where to start with these can anyone point me in the right direction.

I posted this thread in the wrong section (should possibly be in the General Forum)
