Server 2003 shuts itself off.

One of my clients has a 2003 Standard Edition Server.  Around a month ago, it shut itself off.  After restart it, the server stayed up and running for around a month.  This week, the server shut itself off 3 times 2 days aga and turned off again this evening.  I stop the UPS service running on the server (I thought maybe the UPS was shutting down the server.  I guess it don't work.

Does anyone have any suggest to why the server shuts itself off, not restart, but shutdown.

Is there anything in the logs? Does it shut down safely or just power off?
It's hard to say why without more info...

check the system from the event viewer from computer management. Do you see anything with red x mark?

Also, check in the services below services and applications from computer management for services - for instance there are some services that are if an application has stopped, restart it if it fails again, shut down the server

If all the above don't lead to anything, is the computer hooked up to a UPS and is the battery on the UPS good.   Also, if it is a Dell or HP, you could check the Openmanage or Insight logs to see if there is a hardware problem causing the shutdown (possibly heat related).  I also heard of one client whose server was shut down at night for no appearant reason.  It turned out a cleaning person was unplugging it to plug in a vacuum.
