    Can someone tell me how to shut off the auto shutdown? My daughter has a problem with it and it keeps shutting down before she can do anything to find out what is wrong.

    I'm not quite sure what you mean with auto shutdown. I know there is in your power management the ability to shut off monitors and harddisk but i've never experience auto shutdown nor have i yet to see a autoshutdown feature. Are you running a laptop and the battery is running down?
