I was trying to figure out if my power was out last night during switch eletrical fuse so I can figure out whether to throw away perishable foods. My computer was on when I came home this morning (although I was tired so I certainly could have turned it on without thinking). I don't have the "startup automatically after a power failure". Dont have UPS.

So that seems to indicated that computer shut down and restarted on its own.

I did a test. I unplugged my pc for about a minute. It didn't start up on its own when power back.

Could it be that there was a very brief power disruption/flicker that caused it to reboot on its own?
