Solaris2.7 autoshutdown.

I installed solaris2.7 on E450.
Once without any reason the screen turns black and it is written there something like "saving system status" and then the computer shuts itself down - the lights in the front are gone. so I turn the key off and on and on boot time a white screen appears and it is written:" restoring system". Then everything returns back to the way it was before shutdown.
Why does it happen?

It's going into "auto power saving mode" when idle. You can stop it from doing so by; a) "touch /noautoshutdown", b) use the Power mgmt tool (as root) in CDE to disable auto shutdown.

But when I looked at the power manager it was already set to never.

Try the /etc/noautoshutdown, that worked for me on my 450. BTW the "saving system status" is a dead giveaway that PM is active.
