    PC restarting on its own


    I shut my desktop and printer off last night because of storm forecast. After shutting down I walked by and noticed my computer was on. So I shut it down again and this time waited for it to go black. I thought it had shut down. I came in this morning to start it and discovered it was already on.

    Can anyone help me with why this is happening and what I can do about it?

    :)

    Windows 10 -- Issue: computer randomly restarts on its own

    Hello Benjamin,

    To see if any other Third party software is causing the issue, I suggest you to perform the below troubleshooting steps and check.

    Method 1: Run System Maintenance Troubleshooter

    System Maintenance troubleshooter finds and clean up unused files and shortcuts and performs maintenance tasks.

    Follow the steps given below:


    • Type Troubleshooting in the Search box from the desktop.

    • Select the Troubleshooting option.

    • Select View All option and select the
      System Maintenance
      .

    • Click on Next to perform the System Maintenance troubleshooter and follow the steps.

    Method 2: If the issue still persists then,

    Step 1: Start computer in safe mode.


    • Type Settings in the search box on the desktop, select
      Settings.

    • Here select Change pc settings and then
      General.

    • Scroll down to Advanced startup, click
      Restart now.

    • Click on Troubleshoot, Advanced options, and Startup Settings.

    • Click Restart, select Safe mode and then press
      Enter.

    Step 2: Perform Clean boot to avoid any third party software conflict.

    Disclaimer: Putting your system in
    Clean Boot
    state helps in identifying if any third party applications or startup items are causing the issue. You need to follow the steps from the article mentioned below to perform a Clean Boot.

    Note: Refer "How to reset the computer to start normally after clean boot troubleshooting" to reset the computer to start as normal after troubleshooting.
