Is your server attached to UPS?

Did you check to see if there is any task schedule?

Did you do any security patches of recent?

Also, check the power management settings

Unfortunately all that event tells us is that something initiated a programmatical shutdown using what is actually an old mechanism.

Around the same time in the event logs should be someting else that tells you what actually initiated it.

Also things to check include that VMwareisn't set up to perform either a scheduled or smart shutdown - depending on the version, it can power down machines that aren't in use so I would check your tasks and events in VMware.
