    We bought new Gateway ZX4000 Windows 7 Premium 64-Bit for our grandson's birthday. We are having so many complications with Win7.
    We were using the computer and then we went downstairs to eat and when we came back, the computer was turned OFF. Is this something new with this desktop (All-In-One)? Does it turn off by itself? We noticed the Hibernate mode was turned OFF (marked - Never).
    Is there any way to stop this? I believe this All-In-One (touch screen, etc.) is configured like a laptop.

    Was it off or in standby?

    If no settings for a scheduled shut-off are active, I'd say that Windows 7 is not your problem--the computer is.

    What other sorts of "problems" have you had? The machine may shut down by itself if it overheated.

    You shouldn't have problems with a new machine. As painful as it may be to the grandson, get your money's worth and make them make it work right.
