  1. General fix for random reboots and system issues where power is the reason.


    * Moved from Community Participation CenterHi people.


    I have helped a growing numbers of users with issues like random reboots, black screen after X min or hardware just stops working.

    Win 10 powersettings are default set to save power. This sounds good, and was a good thing 10 years ago. But not any more.

    Even when your PC runs on full power, it doesnt use more power then your TV.

    You dont really "save" much on saving power. ONLY your monitor gets effected if it gets turned off 12 hours a day, instead of being on.

    (If you are not home for example)


    Win 10 Powersettings

    The powersetting can be a wierd reason for random shutdowns. But it happens to quite alot.

    Is your computer always connected to a power outlet?


    If yes, then I suggest you change your power profile to "Max performance".

    - And check additional power settings for anything that can decrease power in any way.

    Changing power settings to High and "never sleep" CAN fix a lot of odd issues, but isnt the solution for every problem.


    You dont hurt the computer by having max performance settings and never let the PC lower power to anything.

    A PC doesnt use much power, even if its on max. Your stove and Fridge consume far more then your pc, for example.


    The PSU (Powersupply) in ANY system, is the bodyguard of powering your system. The PSU dont take order from anything! It gives power as needed, and has built in security like Automatic shutdown if there is a powersurge, system overheats or other instable powerissues.

    A few screenshots as a guide : Open Settings, and choose system. Then change your settings to this:

    - Then click on "Additional Power Settings", and choose High Performance.

    - Click on "Change plan settings" to the right of High Performance and change "Turn off display" and "Put computer to sleep", to NEVER, on both.

    - Next, click on "Advanced power settings", and change these:

    Make sure "sleep" and "Hibernate" are put to "NEVER".
    - Scroll down and check these options:

    - And last, check this:

    I cant garatee that this will fix all power-related problems. But these settings has fixed mine, and many others random shutdown over the years.

    - The settings will also block other apps who wants to shut your system down, without asking you.

    Making these changes is 100% harmless and you will not use much more power then "saving mode".


    Save power, is only really needed if you have a laptop without access to a power cable.

    Restore powerplan
    You can easily restore default power settings, by pressing "Restore Plan Defaults". Then choose a plan.

    Comments, suggestions and feedback if you tried max power, are very welcome!
