Nice Rindi,


from your answer, I came to know that, to record a reason in the event log it is asking the reason.

thanks a lot. Because I am alone working today.
FWIW... I've seen it happen on 2008, too. After doing Windows Updates then choosing Restart Now. It happens sometimes only.
That is the shutdown event tracker at work. Personally I disable it but it is the default action.
