    My PC has been shutting down by itself (however its only when its idle) So when I don't move it for a couple of minutes (not when in sleep mode) So if I leave it alone for a while it just shuts down abruptly.

    Sometimes the PC just freezes, but doesn't shut down. (usually happens when I don't move the mouse while watching movies/videos, or just leaving the PC idle when listening to music)

    AMD Bulldozer FX-8150
    Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo Direct Touch 4
    Gigabyte GA-990XA-UD3 AMD 990X AM3+ ATX
    AMD Performance Edition 2X4GB
    Gigabyte Radeon HD 6850 Windforce
    Seasonic S12II 520W Power Supply

    Is this a heating issue?

    What is the time setting for your screensaver? Try a different one.

    I have screen savers turned off.
    Also I turned off sleep mode and display off modes just to see how long it would take for the computer to freeze.

    Not sure if I am allowed to double post, but bumping here.
    My GPU temperatures are stable at around 42 degrees Celsius and reaches up to 60 on a decent load
    Core temps stay around the 25 area on idle and go up to around 45-50 on a decent load.

    I don't think this is a heating problem, but I can't say for sure. Does anyone know why the PC may be shutting down or freezing?
