What else happened when auto-rebooting, maybe update installations? There are no errors that will force a reboot.

Why revert? Only verify when updates were installed and if this reboot finished installing them. It's all in the event logs.

HI McKnife, thanks for sharing. we can conclude whether is windows update is causing the windows auto restart. but it may the possibility. so we just turn off windows update and monitor for next few weeks.

Really appreciate the sharing.
