Computer shutting down programs at night--with no reboot

Have a work PC--every night, it shuts down every program on a user--but up time does not reflect a reboot.  I've disabled gupdate, as I've read previously that could cause the issue--but that did not resolve the problem.  I can't see anything in the Event logs that would indicate something causing program shut down---although I do see some Group Policy failures.  I've also checked to make sure hybrid/hibernate is not enabled.

It does not save any of the work on those programs as well.

Windows 8.1

It's basically just a forced user logoff. It's described here:

Or if you want to do it manually:

Disable the Windows Customer Experience Improvement Program

1.  In the Windows 7 guest operating system, start the control panel and click Action Center > Change Action Center settings.

2.  Click Customer Experience Improvement Program settings.

3.  Select No, I don't want to participate in the program and click Save changes.

4.  Start the control panel and click Administrative Tools > Task Scheduler.

5.  In the Task Scheduler (Local) pane of the Task Scheduler dialog box, expand the Task Scheduler Library > Microsoft > Windows nodes and open the Application Experience folder.

6.  Disable the AITAgent and ProgramDataUpdater tasks.

7.  In the Task Scheduler Library > Microsoft > Windows node, open the Customer Experience Improvement Program folder.

8.  Disable the Consolidator, KernelCEIPTask, and Use CEIP tasks.

In the Event Viewer on the computer, check the System event log and filter Event ID 6006. Does anything show up there?  I'd start there and see if that gives any clues.
