Windows 7 Shuts down every night after user leaves

Hi,

I have a user who every morning needs to start his computer because it shuts down every night. I tried setting his windows settings to never shut down, but it's not doing it. It's still shutting down at night after the user leaves.. .

The exact  saying in event viewer is "The operating system is shutting down at system time " It gives the system time and then shuts down...

Any ideas?

Check your power settings. There's an option to set a time for shut down.

Where is this at? I checked the power options and set the system for "High Performance". I'm trying that out, but I have a feeling it's not going to work..

need a touch more info  if it isnt the power saver settings
check their Tasks to make sure they didnt put in an autoshutdown program
START - TASKS - select schedule tasks automatically

is this user on a domain/network?  is it possible its part of a network shutdown policy?

its also possible to program the bios to shutdown/startup computers.
If the user doesnt mind the shutdown, its only the start-up delay that upsets them, you can setup the bios to startup the computer 15 minutes before the work day.

If you check the event viewer under the Windows Logs --> System there should be an event for the system shutdown. From there you should be able to find out what is shutting down the machine.

Hey, I figured it out.. I set those machines for "High Performance" and they haven't been shutting down.

Thanks a bunch!
