    Hello,

    I am trying to figure out how to diagnose this problem, and am not even really sure where to start. I can use my computer for 5 minutes, 30 minutes, or 6 hours, and everything will work fine. As soon as I leave, probably 90% of the time, the computer restarts on its own within about 5-10 minutes. If I happen to come back to the computer in a few minutes and keep using it, everything is fine, but then if I leave it for 10 minutes again, it will probably have restarted.

    Thanks!

    Are you sure that it's not sleeping after the 10 minutes of idle?

    Check the power settings by going to the search bar and type power then choose Power and Settings. Check to see which of these settings are set to 10 minutes and adjust to your specifications.

    The Balanced Power Setting were set to "Never" and "Never". The Power Saving one was set to like 30 minutes, I changed it to never and never also, but it wasn't selected.

    Check the Advanced settings too for anything that is set to 10 minutes. Other than that, I am not sure what would cause it.
