Terminal Server 2000 shutting down unexpectedly everyday at the same time.

I have a terminal server set up in one of my sites that over the past week or so started shutting down everyday around 4:30 pm.  It only shuts down for a couple of minutes.  The only indication of it shutting down is all of my users on thin clients get kicked off back to the login sceen.  Event Viewer shows no errors, only that the event logging was stopped and started maybe a minute apart.  I am sure that the users did nothing to cause this and I have changed no settings.  Any suggestions anyone?

When you say shut down, does it shut down (power off)....and then come back on all by itself, or is it restarting?

It appears to be restarting.  Unfortunately, no one can see what happens with the server, so my information is coming directly from the users.  I am thinking that it is disconnecting, because based on the event viewer, the event logging is stopped and started all within a minute.

No and they would not know how to set anything like this.

Your users dont have the ability to restart.....only logoff, correct?

That is correct and they all use thin clients, so they log off only.  The server is in a locked office and is set that only an administrator can shut down.

Looks like automatic updates was the culprit.  Downloading updates and restarting the server.  Turned it off and it seemed to fix the problem.
