Causes for Windows 10 Pro workstation on Workgroup to lose Static IP address and switch to DHCP.

I've not encountered this happening in my best recollection.  What would  cause a Windows 10 Pro workstation to switch from Static IP addressing to "Automatic / DHCP"?
Is this a common occurrence?  
I can imagine but I've just not seen it happen - at least in a very long time!
So, causes are important as this disrupted a number of things on the network.
One might expect foul play if there are few occurrences of this.

GPO?  I have never seen it happen but the first thing I'd check is to see if a group policy got pushed to it.

Sorry,  I thought I'd said that this one is in a Worgroup.  No domain or GPOs.
