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.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

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!
