    Hey I've been having this problem for quite awhile now, everynow and again seemingly random my computer will turn of completely then startup again. At first I thought it was a powersupply issue, but after getting a new one I ruled that out. Then I thought it was due to power surgers so I got a surge protector to rule that out. So now I have no idea. The shutdowns do not happen when the computer is under alot of stress. Sometimes I can leave my computer on for days and it will never happen. Any ideas?
