    i just built a new computer and have been playing farcry 3 on it and it will randomly restart after about an hour of active gameplay
    i looked at the event viewer and i saw this
    "The kernel power manager has initiated a shutdown transition." and

    Event xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/win/2004/08/events/event">
    - <System>
    <Provider Name="Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-Power" Guid="{331C3B3A-2005-44C2-AC5E-77220C37D6B4}" />
    <TimeCreated SystemTime="2013-01-11T22:54:41.574489000Z" />
    <Correlation />
    <Execution ProcessID="572" ThreadID="576" />
    <Security />
    - <EventData>
    <Data Name="ShutdownActionType">6</Data>
    <Data Name="ShutdownEventCode">0</Data>
    <Data Name="ShutdownReason">5</Data>
