What might have caused a win xp machine to reboot at 1AM on Wed 2/19?

A home user that I provide patch management, monitoring and AV with GFI signed up with a backup service (not mine) and asked me to make sure her machine did not reboot last night as it does the initial seeding.
I went into her machine in GFI dashboard and turned off patch management. In GFI, I have reboot set to 'if needed'.
Today she says her machine rebooted overnight and is "blaming" me. GFI does show it rebooted at around 1AM.
I confirmed that in the GFI dashboard, her machine patch management is OFF. I looked under GFI, settings, patch management and don't see any patches that came out yesterday / would have been installed last night.
I guess I'll log in remotely and check the event log to see if there was any indication of what caused the reboot, but would anyone know what might have caused the reboot? Patch Tuesday is usually the 2nd Tuesday of the month, right? This was the 3rd Tuesday.
