    PC restarts when idle

    Hi,

    I have an ASUS ROG-GL752VW laptop with windows 10. I am facing this issue for the past two weeks and i believe that this issue began after a routine update. Whenever i leave my PC for 5 minutes ( i have set 5 minutes for the display to turn off) and the
    display goes off, the PC restarts by itself. It doesn't happen when i am using it, I play games for 3-4 hours continuously and it runs fine. The problem occurs only when i leave it idle.

    Is there someone having this problem and can guide me how to solve it ?

    Thanks !

    PC restarted by itself when it was idle how can i check why in

    Hi, as I said, predicting the relevant event id's for a restart that occurred for unknown reasons is not straightforward. Try searching for 'What is the event id for a restart' for example, and you'll see what I mean.

    I can only suggest you inspect the events around the period of interest , looking for a log off, shut down, restart... and if necessary using the link I posted to identify them. Trying to work out why a PC restarted just from the event viewer could be extremely time consuming, depending on the number of events.

    If you're lucky and there are few, then it may be feasible to discover something.

    First you'd need a list in time order - note that if you simply open the Event Viewer, the reports are categorised,which make tracking something through time impossible. as you know the time period, you could try this:

    But easier is to get this free program (title top left) which lists events in order:

    Much easier: look at your update history for that day: does it show an update being applied? If so, what is it? Does that update require a restart?

    After leaving my PC idle for awhile. My PC will restart.

    Start bar and Alt+Tab stop working after PC is on after awhile

    After running Win10 without any major issues since its' release about a week ago I started encountering an apparently pretty common issue with the start bar not working. Along with the start bar not being accessible, when I try to use alt+tab, it also does
    not work. When I first logon to my PC it works fine but after awhile the issue appears. I've read through the various publications online detailing the steps of:

    • Running /sfc scannow
    • Re-installing windows apps
    • Repairing windows update
    • Lastly, I have reset my PC (while keeping my files)

    After going through all of the above, the issue still appears..

    My next step is to create another account and use that, before I do that, does anyone else have any other suggestions for this issue?
