I recently did a full hard drive zero wipe and 7 home premium reload on a custom built pc.  Corsair 500 watt psu, 16 gb ram, MSI H77(some letter I forget)-G43 motherboard.  All went well and it ran fine at my place.  I got it all loaded up with my usual programs, office 2010 pro plus, adobe reader, flash player, new version of java, avg free, malwarebyes, ccleaner, chrome, vlc media player. And it was good.


I took it back to the owner and the next day he is saying the same problem is happening.  After leaving the computer alone for 15 minutes or so, it shuts down.


It NEVER did this at my place in 2 days of having it there, I checked it and let it sit undisturbed multiple times for this exact issue.  We checked all the power / sleep / hibernate settings, and it is all set to OFF or to never sleep / hibernate.


Any ideas?  I didn't use the owners' keyboard / mouse / monitor at my place, but I can't imagine any of them causing this problem.

Does he make use of a power board/surge protector...?  If he does, take it out of the loop.

It has been said that time heals all wounds. I don't agree. The wounds remain. Time - the mind, protecting its sanity - covers them with some scar tissue and the pain lessens, but it is never gone. Rose Kennedy
