Dear All
My server ( Windows Server 2012) it's only for application testing purposes.
And I'm backing up all my servers on it. Two days ago there was an update required restarting. And after I restarted the server its  turned off next day when I came to my work I turned it on manually, But today while I'm checking
My backup I found the server turned off again for the second time, Since this day when I'm turning the server ON, It's working only
for ONE hour after that turning off !!, I uninstalled the last update but still,  this issue happened every time I'm turning the server ON
It's taking only one hour after that turn-OFF!
Any help, please.

Next to logs and errors, did you check all fans are working and e.g. The power supply is not red-hot?

If the server isn't activated it will turn off, unless it's a domain controller.
