new PC shuts itself off
« on: January 11, 2018, 03:28:03 PM »
I bought a new Acer desktop PC for my wife from Costco.  It stays on during the day, although sleeps when inactive for a while. We usually check our PC before going to bed about 10 pm.  But the new PC actually shuts itself off every evening sometime between 5 PM and 9:30 PM when inactive.  I haven't been able to figure out why. I checked on the Control Panel and didn't see anything that called for a shutdown.  Any ideas?

Windows 10 operating system.

You'll probably find what you need in 'power plan'.

Are you sure it's not just going into hibernation?  If it is then you have to hit the power button to restart it, but it will come up where you left off similar to "sleep".

Lower left hand corner, click the Windows Icon, then click Settings, then click System, and all the controls are there

You might be correct.  I had already been through all the power plan settings. It seem that it takes a bit longer than i would expect to open up from being in hibernation but that could be it.
